[Job] The Royal Institution, Public Programme Manager, c??30k, clos 27 July 2011 #scicomm jobs

This wasn’t posted by me, this was posted by a clever person from the Ri who read (and followed the instructions contained within it) the page on how to submit your own jobs. I just had to check nothing crazy was in it and press OK. Everything below the line appeared by magic 🙂 Whoever posted this scored well on ‘attention to detail’.


For speed, I’m cheating on adding in all the individual previous jobs from Ri and exploiting Google’s wonderful site-restricted search option to bring you the results of this search:
