Programme and Finance Worker

Unbelievable but true: Howard will be leaving the WRI staff next September after many years in the office -- we won't tell you how many years, as it might hurt his feelings! Having recently been awarded a fellowship by the Einstein Institute in the US, he will be doing research on the nonviolent movement in Kosov@. In the meanwhile we are looking for a new staff person to take on programme and finance work in the London office. You have already received our job advert in a separate mailing last month. The deadline is nearing, but there are still a few days to contact us and return an application. Please help us find the right person for the job by posting, faxing, emailing, and distributing this advert as widely as possible.
