Radio Times press and PR officer Cat Dean has taken up a post previously filled by part-timers and freelancers, as the charity seeks to promote new accreditation schemes.
‘Volunteering England has different business-focused areas and research teams that haven’t received much press in the past,’ said Dean.
Last month, VE launched the business accreditation scheme ‘Investing in volunteering for employers’. Dean’s first task is to get the scheme covered by business and marketing media. She will also be responsible for media relations and internal comms.
Dean reports to head of comms Sonya Roberts, who joined from the Royal College of Nursing in February (PRWeek, 10 Feb).
