The former head of religion and ethics at the BBC, Michael Wakelin, has joined the Council of Christians and Jews, Britain's oldest interfaith organisation, as its new director of programmes.
Mr Wakelin spent four years as head of the BBC's religious broadcasting, standing down from his post this year.
The CCJ's chief executive, David Gifford, said: "Michael brings a wealth of insight and experience at a time of development and change in CCJ. His energy and creativity will be an asset to the team."
