Appointment Announcement: Ms Sarah Williams
18th June 2012
The Bishop of Ely, the Rt Revd Stephen Conway, has announced the appointment of Ms Sarah Williams as the next Diocesan Communications Manager.
Sarah will manage both external and internal communications for the diocese.
Bishop Stephen said: I am delighted that Sarah has come to join our team here in Ely. She is an excellent communicator who brings lots of experience. We have an urgent need in the diocese to grow and develop our communications skills and abilities and so I welcome all that Sarah will bring to us.
Sarah said: I welcome this opportunity to work with Bishop Stephen and the people of the Diocese of Ely in developing new ways of communicating within, and about the diocese.
I am looking forward to hearing the news and stories of people and parishes and then encouraging them to engage with media in positive and imaginative ways as they tell those stories.
Sarah has just moved back to England after some six years living and working in Northern Ireland, most recently as a press officer for the health minister there. She previously worked in the press offices at Lambeth Palace and Church House, Westminster.
