Public Affairs: Charity regulator to set up PA arm

The Charity Commission is setting up a public affairs function to generate better understanding of its work among government bodies and local authorities.

It is recruiting for a head of public affairs, reporting to director of policy and strategy Rosie Chapman.

The successful candidate will lead its first 18-strong PA team, comprised of three newly created posts plus 15 staff in its existing policy department.

The body wants to educate opinion formers about its effectiveness and the work of the charities it regulates. As well as Westminster and Whitehall, the PA team will target political media and businesses. The plans come as the commission distances itself from its reputation as 'the policeman' of the voluntary sector and emphasises its independence.
