PUBLIC SECTOR: Fourteen vie for Belfast’s corporate brief

Belfast City Council is shortly to announce the winner of a pitch to carry out a strategic review of its corporate communications within the next two weeks after an overwhelming response from 14 agencies, both local and from outside the province. The council is bringing an agency on board to the recommend strategy behind a planned expansion in the corporate communications function. The council aims to develop a strategy which will raise its profile with local, national and international audiences as well as cope with the demands of new Best Value legislation and to enhance internal communications. It also plans to build on its team of three led by PR head Wilma Stewart, which has been left behind in terms of resources, despite growth elsewhere in the council. The agency will report to Stewart and assistant chief executive Robert Wilson.
