Carole Easton, the ChildLine chief executive whose role became redundant when the charity was subsumed within the NSPCC, has landed a new post as chief executive of CLIC Sargent.
Easton will join the children's cancer charity in September, allowing acting head Edward Coviello to return to his permanent role of director of finance.
Coviello took over on a temporary basis last December, when former chief executive David Ellis left to become director of business improvement at the National Trust.
Easton had been chief executive at ChildLine since 2001 and stayed on to oversee the transition when the helpline charity became part of the NSPCC at the end of November. She officially left ChildLine on 1 February, but has since been working there as a consultant on an ad hoc basis.
