Babcock to make fresh agency hire

Support services firm Babcock is in talks over the ­appointment of a PA consultancy, having recruited John Gardner to take the new role of head of government relations.

Gardner was director of ­comms at the Chemical ­Industries Asso­ciation until March (PRWeek, 31 March).

But its Scotland subsidiary First Engineering is a sup­plier to Network Rail, and it is moving into the nuclear and airport sectors.
