Search gets under way to find heads for RNID and Scope

Two major charities kicked off their searches for chief executives last week.

The RNID is advertising for a replacement for chief executive James Strachan, who is making a controversial move to become chair of the organisation.

John Lowe, director of technology at the charity, is believed to be in the running for the job, although this has not been confirmed. He worked with Strachan on the digital hearing aids campaign.

Susan Daniels, chief executive of the National Deaf Children's Society (NDCS), is one of the only deaf heads of a large charity and could be in the frame for the £90,000 post. But the RNID and NDCS have recently been in disagreement.

Scope is also advertising a £100,000-plus role and Brian Lamb, director of communications at the RNID, is believed to be among the leading contenders.
