The UK arm of medical aid charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) is

seeking its first communications head in order to raise the

organisation’s profile.



The post will report to MSF UK executive director Anne-Marie Huby and

lead a team of two covering publications and UK and international press

relations. The role involves working closely with the charity’s

recruitment, fundraising and advocacy arms.



MSF’s UK PR was previously split between Huby and international press

and communications co-ordinator Samantha Bolton, who is moving to the

charity’s Brussels office after working at MSF UK’s London office for

the past two years .



MSF UK press officer Polly Markandya, who will report to the new

communications head, said: ’We’ve been quite reactive and we want

someone senior to take a strategic look at how we communicate.’



MSF was founded 18 years ago by a team of French doctors. It now

operates in 82 countries, including the Yugoslav Republic, Indonesia and

the Sudan, providing emergency medical aid, including war surgery,

nutritional assistance and epidemic control. MSF received pounds 7

million from the UK Government and the public last year.
