PRWeek UK Public Sector Briefing 2021
 
Today in your exclusive briefing...

The director of comms at the Home Office has been appointed as the Government Communication Service’s first ever chief executive.

The newly created role will see the post-holder - featured earlier this year in our list of the most senior public sector comms professionals – replace Alex Aiken in his former leadership of the GCS and implement measures to reform the service.

Meanwhile, the GCS has announced the agencies on its £500m campaigns roster and, separately, those on its ‘comms marketplace’, where its ambition to attracts more agencies from the home nations has so far failed to materialise.

And our commentator this week - from our ongoing ‘diary of a volunteer RNLI press officer’ - recounts how a sunk fishing vessel brought home the sharp end of comms for her.

Enjoy this week’s bulletin
