As a result, outside the capital, many charities struggle to recruit fundraisers. They often have to turn to London-based agencies or non-specialist regional recruitment services.John Grain Associates’ new service is staffed entirely by experienced fundraising professionals. Director John Grain explained the need for the new service: “For some time now, charities have been asking for our support when recruiting new staff, or when looking for a career change so we are delighted to be offering this new service.”The recruitment service will be headed up by consultant Polly Symondson. She said: “Having been a fundraiser for many years, I know how difficult it is looking for a job outside of London. Knowing there are great fundraising positions out there, but not knowing how to find them can be extremely frustrating. Now both regional recruiters and job seekers can access a service specifically for them run entirely by fundraisers.”www.johngrainassociates.com AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Organisation According to RSF’s tally, 54 professional journalists – including one woman – are currently held hostage worldwide, a 35% increase on last year. It is no surprise that Syria is the country where non-state groups are holding the biggest number of journalists – 26. Islamic State alone is holding 18, mainly in Syria and Iraq.“A full-blown hostage industry has developed in certain conflict zones,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We are very alarmed by the increase in the number of reporters held hostage in 2015. The phenomenon is above all linked to the big surge in abductions of journalists in Yemen, where 33 were kidnapped by Houthi militias and Al-Qaeda in 2015, against two in 2014. Thirteen are still being held hostage.”The number of journalists currently imprisoned, 153, is 14% fewer than this time last year. A total of 161 citizen-journalists and 14 media workers are also detained. China continues to be the world’s biggest prison for journalists, closely followed by Egypt, with 22 journalists currently held.Eight journalists were reported missing in 2015. These disappearances occur mainly in conflict zones, where instability makes it harder to conduct investigations to locate missing journalists, if indeed there is any investigation at all.Libya, where it is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain reliable information, is the country most affected by this problem. Four Libyan journalists and an Egyptian cameraman, all employed by privately-owned Barqa TV, were reported missing this year in Libya.In response to the scale and variety of dangers facing journalists, RSF has produced a fully revised and amended version of its Safety Guide for Journalists in partnership with UNESCO. Designed for reporters going to high-risk areas, it is full of practical advice on dealing with the dangers awaiting in the field and stresses the importance of preparing well before leaving. The handbook is available in print and online versions in French, English, Spanish and Arabic.
