Lib Dem Jobwatch: Fundraising, campaigning jobs and internships available

There are some very interesting jobs and opportunities with the Liberal Democrats which close this week.

You’ll need to be quick off the mark to apply for a 12 week internship at the party’s Scottish HQ at Clifton Terrace in Edinburgh as it closes on Tuesday. It’s under the Access to Elected Office scheme through Inclusion Scotland:


The role will involve carrying out a research project in concert with Inclusion Scotland and the Scottish Liberal Democrats on the barriers to involvement by disabled people in party activities and the seeking of elected office, while carrying out work within the Party HQ to support their work.

Candidates for the roles must define as disabled people (under the Equality Act 2010, including those with sensory impairments), and candidates with either existing personal involvement with the Scottish Liberal Democrats and/or who have a strong interest in future active involvement will have an advantage. This is because part of the project is concerned with the development of the interns themselves towards greater political engagement, and some existing knowledge and contacts within the Scottish Liberal Democrats and/or aspirations to become more involved in the party would be a considerable advantage in carrying out the project work.

A Fundraising Assistant is sought for the Federal HQ in London:

This is a key role providing high quality administrative and events support to the Liberal Democrats Fundraising Team. The role is being offered on a half-time schedule [20 hours per week] and there is flexibility to work those hours 4 days a week.

Could you do this?

This is a fast paced role suited to someone with excellent organisational and computer skills, effective time management and good interpersonal skills.

Essential Skills and Experience

  1. Self-starter with strong administrative skills and excellent attention to detail
  2. Excellent computer skills including Word and Excel
  3. Good communication skills, both orally and in writing
  4. Ability to prioritise multiple tasks and meet short deadlines
  5. Sympathy with the aims and values of the Liberal Democrats and motivation to support our fundraising effort

    Wiltshire Liberal Democrats are looking for a County Campaigns Officer. That closes on Friday, but they intend to interview before Christmas:

    Wiltshire Council Lib Dem Group are seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic candidate to support the group with their campaigns on both the Council and in our communities.
