The public sector communicators are among 25 PR professionals to be awarded the status for the first time.

Chartered practitioner status is awarded to CIPR members who can demonstrate an outstanding level of professional practice and knowledge, and a commitment to continuous professional development.

CIPR acting director general Ann Mealor said: ‘Those receiving chartered practitioner status this year are all pioneers, setting the bar for future generations of PR leaders. They've had to successfully complete a rigorous assessment process to emerge as the profession's first chartered PR practitioners and are to be congratulated.'
