Knowsley shakes up comms team

Knowsley Council’s comms team has received approval from members to restructure with additional funding for a community newsletter.

Led by head of comms Carol Lamb, the new structure merges marketing and press functions to create a ‘one-stop shop’, and the team is expected to be in place by autumn.

The departmental shake-up was prompted by a best value review of the council’s communications earlier in the year.

New posts in the department will include a copywriter and a news and publications post, but the number of PROs has been reduced from five to four.

The council is currently consulting with residents via focus groups on what format and content the newsletter should take.
