PR Vacancy Signals Recasting of Roles at Rugby Body

A vacancy at the Scottish Rugby Union for a head of public relations and media operations signals a revamping of the media and public affairs at the sports governing body.

The vacancy has arisen following the departure of Stuart Martin as head of press at one of the two professional teams in Scotland: Glasgow Warriors. Martin has joined the Commonwealth Games body, Glasgow 2014

Dominic McKay, director of communications and public affairs at the SRU, has used the move to reshuffle his team, not least to allow Graham Law to concentrate more on acting on behalf of Scotland’s teams.

Law becomes senior media manager (Scotland teams and community). His former job title, head of media, ceases to exist in the new line-up.

The new post, meanwhile, will involve day-to-day media, social media and media for the two professional teams.

McKay told “These changes demonstrate our continued commitment to providing a quality media flow in the ever-changing media and broadcasting environment. Our wider internal and external communications and government affairs activity will be unaffected by this enhancement.”
