World Vision has appointed Jane Evans as head of communications. The charity had been without a PR boss since the departure 18 months ago of Julta Debalden. Evans joins from holiday timeshare company RCI, where she was director of communications. World Vision runs projects to alleviate poverty in 90 countries. Evans has a three-strong team and is recruiting for two more staff. 'World Vision is one of the world's largest aid agencies, yet it is not a household name in the UK. We want to change that,' said Evans.
