Youth Justice Board comms chief joins Chime
Larkins will join the firm, billed as Gordon Brown’s fav­ourite pollsters, as director of public and voluntary sector strategy. He said he would be working with charities and public sector bodies to help build and develop ‘citizen engagement’.
Larkins, who has headed up a 15-strong team since January 2005, is leaving the Youth Justice Board next month. The body is now on the hunt for a new director of comms but its head of mark­eting communications Benet Hiscock will take on Larkins’ role temporarily.
Before the Youth Justice Board, Larkins was head of inclusivity consultancy at the Central Office of Information, where he was charged with reaching marginalised groups.
The Government-funded Youth Justice Board oversees the youth justice system in England and Wales. It exists to stop children committing crime, ensure that legal cases involving young people are heard quickly and fairly, and help prevent reoffending by promoting policies such as
restorative justice.
