Oliver quits Sunday Times

Political editor moves on after two and a half years.

Jonathan Oliver, the Sunday Times' political editor, is to leave the paper after two-and-half years.

Sources close to Oliver revealed that he will take up a job with a corporate PR firm. However, he declined to divulge details about his new job.

Oliver joined the Sunday Times at the end of 2007 replacing David Cracknell, who left for a PR job with Financial Dynamics after six years as political editor.

Prior to this, Oliver worked as the deputy political editor of the Mail on Sunday. He is reportedly the third Sunday Times political editor after Michael Prescott and David Cracknell to make a move to PR in the last decade.

Neither the Times nor the Sunday Times have commented on the matter.
