Head of Communications

Having been Head of Comms for over three years, so many aspects to the role have emerged that there's now too much for one person to do if it's to be done properly.  We already have a small Comms team putting together Dragonfly, On the Button and keeping the website up to date (but help still needed for the last), but I had been looking for a while to reduce my hours, so when Chloe Ford offered to take over I was delighted.  She will start in January and we will do a progressive handover.  However, we would welcome anyone who would like to take part, particularly in areas we haven't been able to cover.  We are developing a Comms strategy that will define these areas; when it is more complete we will put it out for consultation, but meanwhile if you would like to lend a hand, feel free to email chloe.ford@wbct.org.uk
