Wikimedia UK – Recruitment Procedures[edit | edit source]

The application form for a job opening at Wikimedia UK.

Wikimedia UK is committed to open, transparent and fair employment procedures. The employment of staff is done to the highest standards possible. All positions are advertised on public websites and through Job Centre Plus. Applications are through a common application form. A separate Equal Opportunities monitoring form is attached to ensure we are attracting a wide and representative field of candidates. These forms are not included in any shortlisting processes. A declaration of interests statement is insisted upon to identify any links to staff or trustees of Wikimedia UK.

Interviews are conducted by panels that include representatives of the Wikimedia UK community, and consist of identical questions and tasks for each candidate. Candidate are only appointed upon receipt of satisfactory references. All candidates are offered feedback whether interviewed or not.
