Richard Caseby has today been named as the new Director of Strategic Communications at the Department for Work and Pensions.

Mr Caseby has previously worked in a number of senior roles at News UK, including Managing Editor of both The Sunday Times and The Sun. He is expected to take up the role on March 3.

Robert Devereux, Permanent Secretary at the Department for Work and Pensions, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Richard Caseby to the department. He is a proven leader with experience in a range of senior posts. He will take charge of an excellent communications team at a vital time to ensure we continue to explain clearly the changes we’re making to the welfare system for our claimants, our staff, our partners and the taxpayer.”

Alex Aiken, executive director of Government Communications, said: “Richard Caseby is a first class communicator and manager who will make an excellent leader of the DWP communications team. They are already one of the best teams in government and I believe that Richard will build on their reputation and ensure that great communications supports the work of the department.”

Mr Caseby said: “Welfare reform and the introduction of Universal Credit represent the biggest transformation programme in the UK. It is fundamentally about changing culture and behaviour to make sure there is always an incentive to work.

“This is a huge and inspiring communications challenge and I’m delighted to be joining the DWP team to help in the task.”
