Standards body Investors in People UK has created three new
positions - media relationship manager, sector development manager and
marketing and communications manager - designed to strengthen its
marketing and PR team. Marketing manager Ian Luxford said that the media
relationship manager would be responsible for liaising with and managing
the organisation’s PR agency, Countrywide Porter Novelli. This
particular role will be the first dedicated PR post within the body,
which is also in the midst of reviewing its agency arrangements.
