Scott is deputy managing editor of the Financial Times and currently chairs the NCTJ’s accreditation board, and Webster is deputy global editor for visuals at Reuters.

An announcement by the NCTJ states they “will work with the board and executive team to help take the charity to the next stage of its development”.

It adds: “The four trustees bring a range of skills and experience the charity has identified it needs at board level to build its capacity and increase its impact.

“They also reflect the broadening of the charity’s stakeholder base and borders, and the growing significance of its work on equality, diversity and inclusion.”

The NCTJ is a partner in the Community News Project, which aims to recruit and train more than 80 journalists to work in under-reported communities.
