Vacancy for Local Party Organiser
Application Closing Date: 30 August 2019
Job Title: Organiser (part time, permanent)
Location: Thatcham, Berkshire
Salary: £10 an hour or National Living Wage (whichever is greater).
The Local Party is in an exciting period of growth. Newbury is a Tory-facing constituency, where the Liberal Democrats are the main opposition. In 2015 we were left with only 4 Councillors on West Berkshire Council (WBC), but 2019 saw us win 16 out of the 43 seats. With a Local Party membership of 500+, we need to capitalise on our recent success in order to challenge for the Parliamentary seat of Newbury, which we held from 1993 to 2005.
We are looking to recruit a part-time Organiser on a permanent basis to see us through until at least the next Local Elections in 2023, when we plan to regain control of WBC.
The post is part time, 3 days / 22.5 hours a week.
We are looking for an experienced campaigner, who will be able to provide first class support and resources to our Councillors, Prospective Parliamentary Candidate and members, to ensure that we are ready to campaign and win at the next General and Local Elections.
The job is based in Thatcham and the post holder will report into the Local Party’s Campaign Coordination Group. Training will be provided as appropriate.
Applicants shortlisted for interview will be asked to attend an interview in Thatcham at a time to be arranged.
The applicant must be able to start in Autumn 2019.
