Diana fund set to hire PA manager

The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund is searching for its first head of public affairs, two months after CEO Dr Astrid Honeyman’s appointment.

The role will involve lobbying individual governments, the UN and the EU in support of the fund and its charitable causes.

Last month Honeyman launched a consultation process to decide the future of the fund. The specific causes to which it will pledge commitment will be revealed next year, based on its findings.

It is likely that the fund will continue to do work in the areas of landmine clearance and HIV/Aids. As well as raising money for these causes, the charity has in the past worked with governments in a bid to generate public awareness.

It has lobbied the UN and US government to raise awareness of HIV in Africa, and worked with Norway's government on campaigns for landmine clearance.
