The Post Office is scouring the PR market for a government

relations chief to help it tackle the question mark hanging over its

future.



The company has engaged headhunters to search for a head of corporate

relations with responsibility for government relations and public

affairs.



The post became vacant earlier this month following the departure of

Peter Wynne Davies.



A Post Office spokesman explained that the new post holder will be

expected to liaise with politicians and to make representations to

interested parties, such as unions, the Confederation of British

Industry and the Institute of Directors. He added that dealing with

Government plans to increase the commercial freedom of the Post Office

would also form part of the role.



Reporting to group director of communications Alan Williams, the job

covers all three Post Offices divisions - Post Office Counters, Royal

Mail and Parcelforce - and carries a salary of around pounds 50,000.
