Dear all

Wikimedia UK is advertising for the new post of Head of Development and Communications, with details on our wiki here:

Please do circulate this amongst your networks, as relevant. 

For background, we advertised for a new Head of External Relations post earlier this year but were unable to recruit. We were just about to re-advertise for a slightly revised post just as the shutdown happened, and I froze recruitment while we assessed the likely financial impact on the organisation. Since then, we have secured additional funding from the Wikimedia Foundation to support the development of our fundraising capacity over the next few years, and so I have reviewed the priorities for this role and changed the emphasis to development, with some responsibility for communications. We are hoping to recruit for a more junior fundraiser later this year.  

Please do feel free to get in touch with any questions, particularly if you would like to discuss the role. 

 All best
