Lib Dem Jobwatch – ALDC internships and OXWAB organiser

Two interesting opportunities working for the party are currently available.

The first is an internship in campaigning and communications for the Association of Liberal Democrat Councillors and Camapigners. Details are as follows:

This is a full-time role, paid at the UK National Minimum/Living Wage (currently £7.20 per hour for 25 year olds and over, and the applicable rate for under 25s) based at our offices in Manchester city centre.

ALDC is the national organisation for Liberal Democrat councillors and campaigners. This is an exciting opportunity to be involved in the work of the organisation as we continue to build on the gains in this year’s local elections and by-elections.

The post is based at ALDC’s Manchester HQ, helping with our national campaigns output, our communications and social media, and also helping campaign ‘on the ground’ with two of our partner local parties in Greater Manchester (Oldham and Bury).

Successful candidates must have sympathy with the aims and values of the Liberal Democrats.

The deadline for applications is 10am on Wednesday 27th July 2016.
Interviews will take place in our offices on Wednesday 3rd August 2016 (travel expenses to attend the interview will be paid

Ellie Hudspith worked as an intern for ALDC in 2014-15. She went on to work for CAMRA and said:

My internship at ALDC was a fantastic opportunity to work with other Liberal Democrats, and gain skills from experienced campaigners. It’s a unique chance to work outside of London but still be involved with the party nationally. Getting to attend party conferences and training events allows you to meet and learn from other campaigners from across the country.

You have just two weeks to apply.

Just up on the W4MP website is the chance to work with a busy and vibrant local party, the key seat of Oxford West and Abingdon, once held by Evan Harris. The local party has hundreds of committed members and a strong local government base.

An enthusiastic full-time Constituency Organiser is required to work for the OXWAB Liberal Democrats Constituency Party. The successful applicant will work with and learn from an experienced Campaign Manager. Initially this is a one year training post with a view to becoming full-time. The salary offered will depend on previous experience.

This is an exciting role working with four teams across the constituency. OXWAB has more Lib Dem members than any other constituency party in the UK.

Activities include literature editing and production, capacity building including increasing membership and delivery networks, and expanding our digital campaigning activities including the use of Connect and Nationbuilder. The work also includes helping to restructure, revitalise and consolidate party websites across Oxfordshire. There will be scope to concentrate on one or more of these activities. Relevant training will be encouraged.

Good organisational and interpersonal skills are essential. Experience of using Connect, Nationbuilder and social media techniques would be an advantage. Some evening and weekend work required.

If you fancy this job, you need to apply by this Sunday, 17th July.
