Business in the Community has appointed Fiona Rawes to lead its education campaign. Since 2004 Rawes has been Chief Executive of the charity Heart of the City, which helps ‘newcomer' businesses to build effective Corporate Social Responsibility programmes. Rawes previously worked in fundraising for the British Red Cross, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the Tate Gallery. She originally trained and practiced as a solicitor.

Business in the Community works with businesses to encourage effective, sustainable partnerships between schools and companies. Its members help young people by supporting schools and communities with education, employability, leadership and management skills.

The Education Campaign Director will develop partnerships at the most senior levels of business and government to increase the scale and quality of private sector involvement in education, particularly in the UK's most disadvantaged areas.
