Save the Children is losing its UK communications head, Corinne
Woods, who is leaving at Christmas to become the charity’s first
communications director in the US.
Woods oversees a team of 28 people covering media relations, education,
campaigns, publications and design. She reports to marketing director
John Kingston. Save the Children is actively seeking to replace her.
Ongoing Save the Children PR campaigns include highlighting issues
surrounding child labour. The charity recently successfully lobbied for
the recruitment of child soldiers to be classified as a war crime by the
international war crimes tribunal last December.
Save the Children operates in 70 countries. Last year the charity
generated pounds 78 million in the UK.
