BRANDIS STAFFER MOVED INTO ABC MANAGEMENT

The Guardian Australia:

“The ABC…[has] appointment Josh Faulks, the deputy chief of staff to the Attorney General, George Brandis.

Faulks takes up the role of head of partnerships and policy at the broadcaster, working with head of TV, Richard Finlayson, to secure funding for content.

Finlayson says Faulks will “ensure that we have open and constructive relationships with our stakeholders and partners in the sector”. In other words, he will be a lobbyist.

The senior government staffer certainly has experience in handling budgets for the arts as he was a ministerial staffer when Brandis slashed the arts funding in the 2015 budget.”
