PUBLIC SECTOR: CSV charity picks Hobbs to direct corporate affairs

Volunteering charity CSV has appointed Karin Hobbs as its director

of corporate affairs.

Her appointment follows a nine-month search, brought about by the

departure of Roger Mortlock from the charity in January.

He left to join the Royal Shakespeare Company as its first director of

press and public affairs.

Hobbs joins from Christian disabilities charity John Grooms, where she

was head of communications.

She had previously worked in PR and marketing at charities Crossroads

and The Winged Fellowship.

Hobbs heads a 13-strong team covering press, fundraising and campaigns

and reports to CSV executive director Elisabeth Hoodless, who has been

covering Hobbs's role in the interim.

One of Hobbs' main tasks is to carry through a boost in PR next year to

celebrate the charity's 40th anniversary.

Hobbs said: 'We are looking to increase both our profile and voluntary

income during the year.'
