Open and Transparent Quality Mark 2016/17 and 2017/18

Andrew Kirchin


I am a qualified journalist and have worked in many communications roles across lots of sectors including professional sport, the NHS and the charitable sector.

I worked for Devon and Cornwall Police in corporate communications for four years prior to taking up this role in the OPCC.

I provide both internal and external communications support to the OPCC, working proactively to promote our key messages and advising senior managers on best communication practice.

I am responsible for developing the OPCC's engagement strategy and implementing its engagement plan.

This includes managing the office's investment in digital media to increase conversations with online communities while developing a suite of key communication tools to improve face to face engagement.

I am the community link officer for Mid Cornwall.
