A senior Save the Children campaigner has been appointed as the boss of an anti-poverty advocacy charity.
Kitty Arie will become chief executive of Results UK next month.
She has spent the past six years at Save the Children International, where she is interim global campaigns, advocacy and communications director. Prior to this she was director of advocacy for Save the Children UK.
Arie will succeed Aaron Oxley, who is leaving Results UK after 13 years as chief executive.
Oxley said he was relocating with his family to Sweden and would use the time for a “stocktake” of his career.
Arie told Third Sector she was joining Results UK “at a time when its mission, to end poverty, could not be more important”.
She described the charity as “an advocacy powerhouse”, and said: “It has a hard-wired belief that transformational change is possible through advocacy. And that is what I believe, so it is a good fit.”
Results UK has raised £8m in the past four years to build networks campaigning against global poverty, according to the latest data from the Charity Commission.
