Gillian Guy, chief executive of Victim Support, is moving to lead Citizens Advice, the national body for citizens advice bureaux in England and Wales.

Guy will replace David Harker, who is standing down in May after 13 years as chief executive. She will start in early July, the charity said.

Guy has been at Victim Support, which helps witnesses and victims of crime, for four years, during which she oversaw the merger of 77 federated Victim Support charities into one national body.

Before that, she spent 11 years as chief executive of Ealing Council.

In a statement, Guy said: "This is a particularly exciting time to be joining, given the challenges and opportunities Citizens Advice is facing, and I look forward to being a part of its strong and dynamic future."
