Wikimedia UK is a growing charity with passionate volunteers, dedicated staff and devoted Trustees. We’re part of the global Wikimedia movement which supports projects such as Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and Wikiversity (to name but three).

We recently commissioned a full review of our governance practices and procedures and what we found was that we’d become even more effective with a larger and more diverse Board of Trustees. This is where you come in.

If you have an interest in Wikimedia projects, a commitment to open knowledge and the desire to help, we would love you to join us in helping to lead the charity through a period of growth and diversification.

We especially welcome applicants with an experience and understanding of Wikimedia projects but this isn’t essential. Energy, positivity and motivation are equally important.

We encourage anyone interested to apply and we particularly welcome female applicants as we currently have no female Trustees.

We hope that this appeals to you and, if so, please contact Richard Nevell, our Office Support Assistant, for more information on 020 7065 0990 or richard.nevell@wikimedia.org.uk

We’re hosting an open day on Saturday 23 March in London for prospective Trustees to meet with the current Board, volunteers and staff. We’d love to see you there.

  1. Hi
    I am a postdoc at ISIG @ London School of Economics. I am interested in open source communities and open source information platform. For my PhD thesis I identified learning and knowledge-production mechanisms that emerge out of community members interactions via OS projects’ mailing lists. I am particularly interested in OS projects including lay users, civil society and social business and how they can enable more sustainable models of software development and use.
    I do not have any prior knowledge and understanding of Wikimedia, but I am very much motivated to take part and contribute.
