Commission hires team of nine for its new office in Wales

The Charity Commission has appointed a team of nine people led by Harry Iles to staff its new Welsh office in Newport. All of the employees were hired in Wales.

Iles, who was previously assistant director of the Gwent Association of Voluntary Organisations, will lead an expanded investigations and legal team replacing the commission's Taunton office.

Other team members bring experience from government, the voluntary sector, business, teaching, IT and journalism.

A Welsh-language version of the commission's website is also to be launched.

Iles, an adviser to community groups on fundraising, trained as a zoologist and is also a sculptor. He is chair of development charity Tools for Self-Reliance, which works mainly in Africa.

"The new team will be able to respond to the challenges facing Welsh charities and will help build our links with the Assembly and Welsh CVA to maximise the effectiveness of the sector," said Iles.
