Criminal Records Bureau to recruit for a comms unit

The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) is creating its own communications department following the separation of the Bureau from the UK Passport Service two months ago.

A spokeswoman for the CRB, which was launched by the Home Office in April last year, said the Bureau would appoint a customer relations and communications director. The successful recruit will manage communication with the thousands of employers and NGOs that use the CRB as a system to check the background of employees working with children and vulnerable adults.

The role’s task of managing relations with organisations using the CRB screening service and managing communication with CRB staff also encompasses the running of two magazines: client magazine Disclosure News and staff magazine Off the Record. The CRB’s head of comms will also manage press relations, although the Home Office’s press team will still deal with general enquiries.
