IPC Media appoints corporate responsibility boss

IPC Media has appointed Taryn Barclay as corporate responsibility manager, a move that sees the company increase its focus on working with the wider community.

Barclay, who joined IPC Media as HR adviser in September 2002, will concentrate solely on corporate responsibility across IPC’s range of magazine teams.

The move will see the group attempt to up its charitable and fundraising activities, such as the Roots & Wings initiative in which IPC staff volunteer as mentors to work with south London teenagers.

Dee Mair, IPC Media’s human resources director, said “It not only recognises Taryn’s commitment and enthusiasm but also the importance that IPC Media places on its responsibilities to the environment and the wider community.”

Barclay’s new role within IPC Media will see the launch of a new CSR programme in September this year, funded by Time Warner, which will teach design skills to 14-16 year old Southwark schoolkids.

The 14 to 16 year olds will have the opportunity to undertake one week’s work experience with IPC and attend an art appreciation workshop at the Tate Modern.

In creating this design initiative, IPC Media has worked with the Department of Media, Culture and Sports’ cultural education initiative, Creative Partnerships.
