Mothers’ Union has appointed a new Senior Communications Manager to be responsible for overseeing its Publications, Events, Digital Media and Media Relations. Sophia Jones’ experience spans as far back as 1992 when she was a Press Assistant at Christian Aid. Since then she has worked as a Communications professional in some of the world’s leading international charities, including Tearfund and World Vision. As a journalist, she has written for a variety of magazines and newspapers.
Most recently, Sophia spent almost six years in Nairobi, Kenya, as the International Rescue Committee’s (IRC) Regional Communications and Media Manager responsible for 10 countries throughout the Horn and East Africa region.
“I’m extremely excited to be working with an organisation that is making a difference in the lives of people both in the U.K and abroad. I have seen Mothers’ Union in places like South Sudan and Kenya as well as here at home. We are truly bringing Christian care to families in practical and spiritual ways. I hope to add value to the wonderful work MU is already doing,” says Jones.
