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.
