Wikimedia CH just hired two new team member

sorry for cross-posting

Dear all,

We are very glad to inform you that Wikimedia CH has just hired Gabrielle Marie as French Community Liaison (FCL), a 50% position and Sabine Ray as Administrative Assistant (AA), a 20% position, both of them will join the team on 1st of September.

When Wikimedia CH started its professionalization process in 2012, we hired two community liaisons for the German and Italian communities in 2013. Since our first Chief Administrative Officer was French-speaking, there was little need at that time for a specific french community liaison. However, with plenty of new and exciting projects coming up in Romandie, in particular the new Wikivillage contest, it recently became clear that a dedicated person was required.

Gabrielle Marie, our new FCL, originally studied commodity trading and worked for 4 years in the derivative industry in London and in Singapore. She then opted for a career change with an interest in social entrepreneurship and co-founded the project “The Tree Shirt House” in Asia. Since she moved to Switzerland in 2013, she signed up for some distance learning courses in Psychology and got involved in the TEDxLausanne organization. Passionate about people and community engagement she is thrilled to begin working for Wikimedia CH starting from next week onwards.
Among other tasks, Gabrielle will be in charge of supporting the volunteers action. For her start she will especially support the organisation of the editing contest targeting the schools in the French-speaking part of Switzerland and will report directly to the Chief Science Officer. She will start working for Wikimedia CH just in time for the launch of the Wikivillage contest promotion.

Sabine Ray, our new administrative assistant, started as an Export Logistics Assistant followed by a successful career in the purchasing and procurement department of an international company for more than 16 years in both, Germany and Switzerland. She is perfectly fluent in German, her mother tongue, English and French. For the last 6 years Sabine dedicated her time to her family life in raising her daughter. She is now resuming her professional life in taking this opportunity for a career change and is glad to join the Wikimedia CH team.
Sabine will work closely with our Chief Administrative Officer regarding all aspects of administration in human resources, accounting and fundraising. She will also assist in elaborating communication material as well as memberships management.

Gabrielle and Sabine will be both based in Lausanne, you can reach them at [hidden email] and [hidden email]

Please give a warm welcome to the new members of our team and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!

Anh and Charles

Directors of Wikimedia CH, in the name of the core of the recruiting committee: Anh Chung, Muriel Staub, Stéphane Coillet-Matillon, Yann Heurtaux and Charles Andrès
