The Metropolitan Police is looking for a deputy director of public

affairs to replace Charles Dodsworth who is retiring after

four-and-a-half years.



The new appointee’s role will be slightly different to Dodsworth’s

following the restructuring of the directorate of public affairs and

communications.



Met sources say changes in the governance of London in the inception of

the GLA and the introduction of a mayor, have given rise to the need for

a ’more news-oriented role’.



The position reports to director of public affairs Dick Fedorcio, and is

directly responsible for two heads of branches; the assistant director

of news and the assistant director of internal communications. In total,

the deputy director oversees a department of about 80 people.



- Thames Valley Police is seeking two media and communications managers,

one based in Slough and one based in Windsor. They will report to head

of external communications Alison Goodwin who is based at the Thames

Valley headquarters in Kidlington, near Oxford.
