[Job] Autistica, Head of Fundraising & Communications, ??40-45k (f/t or p/t pro rata), clos 24 Feb 2012

I’ve included this because of the Comms component but the Fundraising makes it a smidge less scicomm than other jobs. Still, I keep seeing loads of nonsense claims about autism being made (and debunked) – one today is from @b_m_hughes blog which is worth a read http://thesciencebit.net/2012/02/08/how-to-argue-illogically-tonys-ten-top-tips/

Other jobs I’ve posted at this charity include
