ORG is looking for new Board members

Update: deadline for applications is Friday June 22nd

It’s hard to believe, but the Open Rights Group is nearly two years old! Over this period, ORG’s Board have steered the organisation on a steady course. But there’s still a long way to go yet, and we’re looking to refresh our ranks with new folks interested in dedicating 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.

So we’re looking for applications to become a non-executive member of ORG’s board. 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.

But it’s also a position that promises significant rewards:

  • Playing a major part in the success of an innovative young campaigning organisation that is already making a 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 human rights and freedoms in the digital era.
