- supports volunteer transcription projects. We run FreeBMD, FreeCEN and FreeREG,
- supports the development of Open Source tools to support community transcription of historical documents, and
- promotes making family and wider history records available under Open Data formats.
This is a newly created role, bringing extra capacity to Free UK Genealogy at a time of change. There will be opportunity to train and support new volunteers. We are looking for someone who is willing – excited even – by the idea of working in an environment where observing, thinking, and contributing to the wider picture are part of the role.
You will be working as part of a small team of permanent staff members, contracted and volunteer developers, and volunteers in many management and support roles. We all work from home (we have no offices). The salaried staff all are based in the UK, but contractors and volunteers live around the world. Home working
, full time
, 18 month contract with possibility of extension
. Up to £28,000 p/a, with generous leave - and pension from July 2017. Please note closure date: Friday 23rd September, noon.
