I am happy to share a couple of jobs that Management Sciences for Health (MSH) is recruiting for KM professionals with 3-5 years of experience. Please feel free to connect with me for more information and to share with anyone in your networks who may be interested.


 

Thanks, Stan!

Interesting that they’ve combined KM and Comms for the first role there. I had a quick look at the position description - looks great. If only I were in full-time work mode...

I really like the idea of combining these two the way they’re describing - makes all the sense in the world to me. Wonder whether this is an aberration, or a trend in KM work. Anyone know?

Tom, when I was at HP, I once led KM and communications for the Americas.  So there is at least one example.

Hello, my former role at WarnerMedia (one I created) combined KM and Communications; they proved to be very complementary, and were built on an earlier foundation of metadata standards and taxonomies. I'd say the job split was about 70/30 KM to Comms. Even if a job posting is 100% KM focused, the other skills can really help with the core KM responsibilities. As I look for a new role, I always emphasize that the Comms and metadata experience strengthen what I can accomplish with great KM practices!


Rezwan Alam
 

A Bangladeshi national NGO Manusher Jonno Foundation (MJF) set up it's first KM team in April 2018. I joined there as Director, Research, Communication and Knowledge Management, providing leadership guidance to three inter-related functions. We have some 70+ staff, more than 100 partner NGOs and we are reaching out to some 1.6 million marginalised communities with our human rights and good governance works.

In the last 30 months, our four-member team introduced many new KM tools including development of KM strategy. My recent article captured Covid-learning of our organization including partner NGOs. You may read it here.
Best,
Rezwan

Tom,
It's not unusual for KM and communications to be packaged together in the USAID contractor world/international development. These are typically project-based positions and not KM at the corporate level. This is KM with a strong outward focus and often it's more about external communications for the project than anything else. 
Happy holidays!

It seems natural to me and probably to the many USAID CKMers.

We teach all our CKMers Transformational KM, which includes an Awareness Campaign -- both a Communications and a Learning Plan.
