Christian Aid is looking for a new head of media to support its profile-raising work in under-developed nations.

Christian Aid is looking for a new head of media to support its

profile-raising work in under-developed nations.



The new head, who will supervise seven staff, will replace Martin

Cottingham.



Cottingham is leaving to join Christian Aid’s competitor charity Oxfam,

in its regional campaigns office in Bristol.



The new head of media, on a salary of pounds 26,000, will join an

organisation which has already undergone a major restructure in response

to a fall in income.



The charity’s press relations are now handled by a central press office

after the loss of around ten PR jobs two years ago, which were

previously spread across the organisation.



Christian Aid is involved in work with supermarkets in the UK to promote

fair treatment for third world produce suppliers and workers. It also

lobbies for reduction of Third World nation debts.



Kate Phillips, Christian Aid’s director of external relations, said that

the new appointee would be responsible for pushing the annual Christian

Aid Week, plus building on developing alliances with other charities and

organisations dealing with Third World debt.
