Election, Campaign and Office Manager needed to work in Witney
Salary: Circa £32,000 pro rata plus pension – 24 hours a week, additional hours required during campaign time.
Closing Date: Monday 21 August 2017 Noon
We are looking for a Campaign Manager who will be responsible for supporting the work of the Member of Parliament and building incumbency. This is both a campaigning and a management role which includes lots of hands-on, rural campaigning work. The role requires substantial flexibility and a can-do attitude as, even over short periods of time, political and campaigning priorities can develop and change rapidly.
It is ideally suited to an enthusiastic and ambitious on-the-ground campaigner with a strong desire to succeed. The candidate should enjoy a wide-ranging job role and it is important that successful applicants be self-starters. It is likely that the successful applicant will have some campaigning experience within the Conservative Party and in managing people.
Working hours will, of necessity, need to be varied and flexible including weekends and evenings. The successful candidate should ideally possess a full driving license and have access to a vehicle.
The full and detailed job description document is attached.
If you have the skills required to succeed in this role, please submit your CV and a covering letter to David McFarlane via email@example.com or by post to West Oxfordshire Conservative Association, Waterloo House, 58-60 High Street, Witney OX28 6HJ.
We welcome applications from all sections of the community. We value diversity and appoint on merit.
