Britain’s largest trade union for managers and professionals, the

Manufacturing Science and Finance Union, has appointed Miles Webber as

its new head of campaigns and communications.



Webber replaces Hilary Benn who left MSF to become a special adviser to

Secretary of State for Education David Blunkett.



The union is currently interviewing for the head of research post and

Webber’s redefined role comes as part of an audit of the communications

functions.



’Communications is moving up the agenda,’ said Webber, who was

previously political director for corporate and political agency

LSA.



Webber said he expects in the long term to seek external help in

creating a new brand for the 460,000 member union.
