OurKingdom, the UK section of openDemocracy, is seeking a volunteer to help support our editorial team. We are looking for someone who wants to combine editorial and organising skill to help transform the democratic and constitional culture of the UK. 

You would support the editorial team, with the chance to develop your commissioning, editing, publishing and writing skills. You would receive training throughout the placement. Supported by Co-Editor Niki Seth-Smith, you would be given the freedom to use your initiative, oversee your own projects and write posts. This is an opportunity to build relationships with politicians, journalists, academics and activists at the forefront of thinking on Britain today, while developing your own ideas and building a voice. 

It is possible to work remotely, or from our London offices in Dalston. We are able to pay travel expenses and lunch money.

Please apply to "[email protected]" with:

 - CV plus covering letter 

 - Three commissioning ideas

Please write VOLUNTEER OURKINGDOM in caps in the subject line. 


Trade deals, Brexit and disaster capitalism

If you're tired of Brexit, you ain't seen nothing yet.

Is the UK joining Trumpland? Does this explain Boris Johnson's kamikaze EU negotiating strategy? And could beating this deal begin a challenge to the iniquities of the global economy?

Join us for a free live discussion at 5pm UK time, 24 September

In conversation:

Nick Dearden Director of Global Justice Now and author of 'Trade Secrets: The Truth about the US Trade Deal and How We Can Stop It'

Caroline Molloy Editor of openDemocracyUK and ourNHS
