The Liberal Democrats require a dynamic, highly organised and effective Chief Steward to organise and oversee the volunteer Stewards Team for Federal Conference. This all-year round volunteer post is of two years duration. As a volunteer post, it is not remunerated, but reasonable and agreed expenses are paid.

Working with the Conferences and Events Manager who is based at Headquarters, the Chief Steward will be responsible for the effective recruitment, involvement and development of volunteer stewards to help improve the experience and reputation of our democratic conferences for our members and other attendees. The successful applicant will be expected to produce a stewarding plan for FCC and adhere to a budget set by the committee.

The appointment will be made by the Federal Conference Committee. Contact Geoff Payne, Vice-Chair of FCC ([email protected]) for further details and job description. Application by CV and covering letter to him by 9th November 2012.

    This sounds like what we used to call a “job”. Specified duties etc etc. Don’t we have a policy of paying at least the legal minimum wage for jobs? Sigh.

  • I agree with jenny. It is in effect a job and should be paid like a job.

  • Having met the previous holder I can say those are some big boots to fill…

  • The absence of any remuneration suggests the advice of the post holder will not be valued. So why bother?
