Job title[edit source]

Speaking as someone who is familiar with the UK comms industry, I think you might consider altering "Organiser" to another word. It'll puzzle the eventual jobholder's peers - and future employers. If you're worried about calling them a "Manager", "Coordinator" is one of the more usual terms used. --Dweller 17:54, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

I wanted to call the post Director of Communications (a title that tends to impress outsiders) but the board thought that would be confused with their roles as 'directors'. Yes this is something to consider. First step find someone good! Jon Davies WMUK 13:14, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
The board should be calling themselves "Trustees" not "Directors" (they are both, of course, but the former is more precise). You could go with "Chief Communications Officer" or "Head of Communications". --Tango 21:33, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
Unfortunately, the salary isn't really commensurate with a 'head of' or 'director' position (which is a shame, because this is an entry level salary for London area, which might mean you don't get the experience that the post probably demands to be most effective). Communications Officer or Communications Executive would probably about cover it. Owain.davies 09:23, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
