STOP PRESS: Labour continues hunt for media director
The Labour Party is seeking a new media communications director
following the departure of acting media head Mike Craven to form his own
lobbying firm earlier this month (PR Week, 6 November). The post was
advertised last summer after the departure of David Hill to Bell
Pottinger, but failed to attract candidates of a sufficient calibre. The
director will oversee the party’s press office, media monitoring and
attack and rebuttal units.
