Richard Nevell

Office Support Administrator, Wikimedia UK
Biography   
Hi, I’m Richard Nevell. I’ve been involved with the English language Wikipedia since 2006 and was made an admin in 2008. My main focus has been on Wikipedia, but I’ve also edited Wikimedia Commons. My job is quite varied, and as part of it I've been lucky enough to help introduce new editors to Wikimedia projects and am an accredited trainer.

Outside Wikipedia, I have a BA in Ancient History and Archaeology and an MA in History, and in my free time I’m also doing a PhD in Archaeology. I say “outside Wikipedia”, but I often edit in areas related to archaeology and history as I’ve found that putting together an article on a particular subject helps me to wrap my head around it.

What I do   

  • Supporting Office and Development Manager in financial duties
  • Acting as first point of contact in the office
  • Attending training events to engage with the community

I am an Accredited Wikimedia UK trainer. My accreditations are:

  • Technical (Full).
  • Institutions (Full).
  • Members (Supporting).

If you would like me to run or attend a training event, please feel free to contact me using the information on this page.
