Old Job, New Job

Some of you know about this, some not, but here’s the text of an internal email from my boss from the other week.
“Following recruitment for the new role of Head of Strategy and Development, I am pleased to welcome Damian on board to this post.
The new role will involve reviewing our current activities with a view to ensuring we offer a holisitic service to our users; identifying policy areas within national and local government activity where social action and media training can present solutions eg. crime reduction, civil renewal, media literacy; working with National and Regional Managers to identify resource requirements and funding opportunities to sustain current activities and the development of new and innovative work.
Damian’s extensive media experience across editorial, strategic and communications issues, in commercial and public service arenas, as well as the third sector, will help contribute to our potential to deliver our strategic plan.
Damian’s experience includes time in commercial radio helping to launch Oxygen FM in Oxford – the first UK volunteer led radio station with a full FM licence. From here he joined the BBC where his most recent role was as Business Manager for the BBC’s New Media & Technology Division, during a period that saw the launch of BBCi, the roll out of a comprehensive Interactive TV service, and the submission to DCMS of the BBC’s case for its online service.”

NB: this is what I’ve been doing for the last year (more or less,) but it’s now permanent!
