Centre for Cities fills lobbying role

The former media chief at the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) has resurfaced at the Centre for Cities.

Claire Hibbett becomes the think-tank’s first head of external affairs, overseeing lobbying and media relations.

The Centre for Cities was set up in 2005 to conduct ­research into city economies, focusing on transport, housing, devolution and migration issues. Until last week, it sat within the Institute for Public Policy Research think-tank, but is now fully independent.

Hibbett was media director at the EOC until September, when it became part of the new Commission for Equality and Human Rights.
