Board Elections

Alongside community experience, we would be keen for people to stand with any of the following skills or experience:

  • Accounting
  • External relations
  • Charity governance
  • Working with or in the cultural sector

However this is not essential. What is more important is a commitment to open knowledge and the work of Wikimedia UK, and a willingness to take on the responsibility of being a charity trustee and board director of a limited company. There is more information about what this means here. We strongly value diversity in Wikimedia UK's board of trustees and this year, would particularly encourage younger people (aged under 40) to stand.

If you would like an informal conversation with our Chief Executive or one of the trustees about what being on the board involves, and potentially standing for election, please do send an email to infoatwikimedia.org.uk and we will set up a call. We will send out details of the formal process for standing for election nearer the time.
