We are excited to introduce to everyone a new addition to the team, Karla Marte, who is joining us as our Administration and Programme Assistant.

Having recently undergone a process of refocusing of our activities, we are now entering an exciting new phase where we want to build on large scale partnerships with external organisations. Strong reporting and administration will be a key element of that.

Karla will be providing both core administration and financial support for Wikimedia UK activities, with focus on its programmes and reporting. The role spans across the organisation though, providing administrative help wherever needed, which will make her much appreciated! She will also be the first port of contact for the organisation, so you will definitely come across her soon.

Karla has a very interesting background, coming to us from the Dominican Republic. Here she’s introducing herself:

“I recently relocated to the UK from the Dominican Republic. I have worked for an international development donor agency in the Caribbean region for the last ten years providing a range of administrative, financial and programmatic support to its education, health, youth, democracy and governance, and environmental programmes. I have an undergraduate degree in Business Administration and a masters degree in Management and Productivity.

“In my spare time I enjoy reading, baking, watching films, exploring museums and historic places and am a big follower of Formula 1.

“I am really looking forward to using what I have learnt from my previous work experience to further Wikimedia UK’s objectives.”

Please join us in welcoming Karla to the team!
