Fox, who has worked in comms for a variety of public, private and not-for-profit organisations including Ombudsman Services and the Information Commissioner’s Office, leads a team of six at Regenda’s new 24,500 sq ft HQ in Liverpool city centre, with the organisation having recently relocated from Bolton.

Despite a tiny budget of £54,000 – although there are specific budgets for some other comms projects – it’s still been an extremely busy year for Fox and her team. High on the agenda has been supporting the social housing provider’s restructure – a result of government caps on rent rises – with a programme of internal and external comms, while it has also completed a recent rebrand and launched a new group intranet.

The comms team has also worked closely with HR to create good internal comms, new recruitment and induction materials, a key point as almost 50% of staff declined the chance to move to Liverpool (the comms team itself has three new members). Fox says that comms is of “strategic importance” to the Group, giving the team some real influence in the organisation.

Away from the office, Fox enjoys big public art and the cultural events on offer in Manchester and Liverpool, and also likes researching her family tree.
