Clarence Mitchell set for Conservative media role

05 Mar
Clarence Mitchell is set to become the head of media monitoring for the Conservative Party's general election campaign, according to PRWeek.

He was previously the government's director of its media monitoring unit between 2005 and 2007, and was also a spokesman for Madeleine McCann's parents.

Mr Mitchell will report to Andy Coulson, the Tories' director of communications, while the publication suggests that he will not be an active spokesperson for the political party.

The two men reportedly have a close relationship, following Mr Coulson's stint as editor of the News of the World.

Mr Mitchell also has experience at Freud Communications in a crisis management role, plus previous newspaper jobs at the Sunday Express, BBC news and BBC Radio Sheffield.

The news - which may interest those looking for PR jobs - comes after a recent Channel 4 News/YouGov poll showed that the Conservative Party's lead in key marginal seats has been cut to two per cent.ADNFCR-2176-ID-19653694-ADNFCR
