Press Association Head of Operations visits DIS

The Department of Information Studies today welcomes John Spencer, Head of Operations at The Press Association, the national news agency, who is visiting selected University of Sheffield departments on a fact-finding tour, with a view to furthering collaborative research.

The Press Association relocated a significant part of its operation from London to Howden in 2000, bringing capital investment to nearly £10m in Yorkshire and Humber. The project increased the number of PA employees in Howden from 100 -500 (ftes) and together with sites in Leeds and Wetherby now employs more than 800 people in the region. John is Chair of Howdenshire Forward, a member of Humber Forum and the Press Association's representative member of the Hull and and Humber Chamber of Commerce.
