The Engineering Council, a trade body which promotes all aspects of
engineers and engineering, has brought in David Worskett, the former
public affairs director of the RAC, to head up its newly-created
communications directorate. Worskett will be the organisation’s first PR
and marketing director - a position created to cover the work of PR and
public affairs and engineering promotion, which marketed the profession.
These two separate roles and their departments have now merged to form
an 18-strong department.
