Ian Morton, former Campaigns Manager at Universities UK (UUK), the umbrella body for the higher education sector and vice-chancellors’ membership organisation, is the latest addition to the social enterprise Campaign Collective.
Campaign Collective helps charities, social enterprises, public service organisations and other campaigners benefit from affordable professional communications advice and support.
Profits from Campaign Collective are used to subsidise support for micro charities and community organisations as well as help develop the next generation of communications professionals.
Ian, who has headed up campaigns on behalf of the higher education sector since 2010, was also previously UUK’s press officer, having joined the organisation in 2005. He commented:
I spent 12 incredible years at Universities UK and I am going to miss being at an organisation at the heart of influencing the future direction of UK higher education. When I joined the press office in 2005, I had no idea where the role would take me, and I’ve been part of some amazing projects since then.
I look forward to continuing to support our universities in my new role, as well other charities and public service organisations. Running a lively and engaging campaign is really important to me and I’ll be bringing that creative passion and enthusiasm to the Collective’s clients – both new and old.
I’ve known the founder Simon for a number of years now and I was totally sold on the concept for Campaign Collective when he first told me about it. Campaigns support should not just be available to those who can easily afford it. I’m also really grateful for the opportunity to work with a group of talented and experienced professionals on a variety of causes and issues.
