Update: The deadline for applications has now been extended to Tuesday 28 October.
The Open Rights Group's Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing all aspects of its work, from payroll to policy decisions. We are very pleased to have in place a committed and expert group of volunteers to undertake these works. And with the organisation approaching its third birthday we are looking for new additions to join the team.
The first requirement, of course, is for applicants willing to dedicate their time to building a sustainable digital rights organisation that can continue to make a real difference in the way the media and policy-makers approach networked, digital technologies. This is a position that requires serious dedication – at least two days out of every month plus the commitment to attend monthly evening meetings, and quarterly Advisory Council meetings. It is also a formal position – collectively, the Board ensures that ORG remains solvent and financially strong and takes responsibility for ensuring that ORG activities comply with all legal requirements. The position is unpaid, although out-of-pocket expenses will be refunded. This year, we are particularly interested in applicants with fundraising and chairing experience.
The role promises significant rewards to the right applicant:
- Playing a major part in the success of an innovative young campaigning organisation that has made and will continue to make significant impact on the UK's politics and media.
- Being at the cutting edge of politics and technology.
- Working with a strong community of like-minded staff, advisers and volunteers committed to strengthening civil liberties in the digital era.
