BBC Children in Need moves to MediaCityUK

He’s been named as the organisation’s director of marketing and fundraising and will take over from Sarah Monteith, who’s held the role since 2011.

In his five years at Old Trafford, Rigby has been involved in the club’s biggest sponsorship deal to date, as well as developing marketing across its social media around the world.
