Thrust into the limelight by members such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta, the controversial religion is keen to attract more UK followers.
CEO of external affairs Janet Kenyon-Laveau wants to expand its PR team from four to 12, and wants the recruits to be Scientologists.
‘We plan to grow our internal [PR] capacity from our existing 123,000 UK member base. It is easier to have people who fully understand what the religion is,' Kenyon-Laveau told PRWeek.
She added: ‘People are becoming more familiar with Scientology not just because of celebrity involvement but because they are realising how successful our community courses are.'
