John Lewis Partnership hires Clayton Hirst as group head of corporate affairs

The John Lewis Partnership has appointed Virgin Media’s director of external communications, Clayton Hirst, as group head of corporate affairs.

Due to take up his new position in April, Hirst joined Virgin Media in 2015 but prior to that spent 10 years at Ofcom in a number of roles before becoming its director of communications in 2010.

His early career was in journalism where his roles included deputy business editor of the Independent on Sunday.

Simon Fowler, director of communications at John Lewis Partnership, said: "Clayton joins us to head up our Corporate Affairs team at a time of huge significance for the Partnership as we help the business develop its thinking on the key priorities emerging from the Government's Industrial Strategy. This includes the UK's direction post-Brexit as well as the issues facing the Partnership from the pressures we've called out affecting society, retail and the workplace."
