EOC seeks interim media director

The Equal Opportunities Commission is on the hunt for a media director as Claire Hibbitt prepares to go on maternity leave.

The postholder reports to acting head of comms John Wilkes – who himself is covering for head of comms Sarah Wootton, also on maternity leave. The position oversees a team of three PROs.

Hibbitt’s cover will have responsibility for public affairs, working closely with the commission’s PA director Sam Smethers.

The incoming media director will be in the post for around one year. The commission said the director will aim to ensure that inequality maintains a high profile in the press and is on the agenda at Westminster.
