PUBLIC SECTOR: Norwich seeks heavyweight to head PR

Norwich County Council is to bring in a PR heavyweight to manage its communications after its executive approved recommendations from Citigate Westminster’s audit of the council’s communications and PR earlier this summer. The post will oversee a revamped communications unit, which will grow from three to eight people with the creation of new functions to help fulfil the demands of Best Value legislation. The role also includes liaising with managers in the key service areas of education, social services and planning and transport and will report to strategy and personnel director Alan Tidmarsh. The role is an upgrade of the existing head of PR post, currently filled by Bernard Farrant, who announced his retirement earlier this year.
