Save the Children has hired Corrine Woods as its new head of

communications.



Woods joins the charity in November, from consultancy Munro and Forster,

where she is an associate director, specialising in issues-based

communications.



Woods, who will report to Save the Children marketing director John

Kingston, has not yet had her remit finalised, due to an on-going merger

of the charity’s public affairs and fundraising departments.



However, Woods’ predecessor, ex-public affairs director Sharon Welch,
