SBS has appointed a new corporate communications manager.
Jessica Harris, most recently senior media advisor to Federal Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities Tony Burke, starts at the broadcaster today.
She replaces Jane McMillan, who moved to Melbourne to take on a government relations role for Australia Post at the end of February.
“We are very pleased to welcome Jessica on board, as she brings with her a robust mix of media, government and community communication experience. Obviously her experience as a senior media advisor both in federal and state politics is second to none,” said SBS director of strategy and communications, Bruce Meagher.
Before working for Burke, Harris was media advisor to former Victorian Premier, John Brumby.
