Tories search for new ad chief after Cameron airbrushing furore

As the dust settles on the recent debacle of the ‘airbrushed’ election ad, the Tories are looking to make a ‘senior addition to the brand communications team’.

An ad has just gone up for the job of General Election Brand Communications Manager at CCHQ.

It states: ‘This is a one-off opportunity to work with the team up to the General Election on all their advertising and marketing activity.’

Among the skills required in the new role are a ‘high level of diligence and attention to detail’.

Interesting eh?

Er, not really, insists a Tory source: ‘It’s just part of the usual staff increase that goes on prior to the general election. The new person will report to Anna Maren-Ashford, who’s got overall responsibility for brand management, and Tom Edmonds, who is deputy head of the department.’

So there you have it. A mere coincidence of timing.

And there was I wondering if Tory strategy guru Steve Hilton sensed the need to improve his team to avoid another clanger slipping through the net…!

  2. Coincidence indeed… My david cameron have said they wont be satirising the next tory poster, knowing its had its day. Still, this hasnt the tories from making their own p-poor fake poster sites. What will be next? The posters have already been turned into a 3d game ( and other copy sites are springing up.

  3. Have you ever been there? What was that experience like?
