Liberal Democrat Job Watch – 10 November 2013

Fancy working for the Liberal Democrats? There’s a variety of jobs on offer over at the W4MP website. Here’s a summary.

Closing soon

If you fancy getting stuck in to the party’s digital projects, based at LDHQ in Westminster, you’ll have to act quickly as this job for a Digital Operations Manager closes tomorrow.

These are the skills you’ll need:

• Experience of supporting stakeholders with varying technical knowledge.
• Experience of relationships with external suppliers.
• Ability to provide IT support including installing equipment and diagnosing problems.
• Sympathy with the aims and values of the Liberal Democrats is essential.

And if you get the job, you’ll have a new member of staff to manage, as the party’s also seeking a Digital Support Officer:

The Liberal Democrats are looking for a Digital Support Officer to provide on-site and remote coaching and support for Liberal Democrat seats and Parliamentary offices using the Liberal Democrats’ suite of online campaign tools, and to help support a wider range of seats on a reactive basis.

That job closes on Friday.

Call Centre

Also in London, staff are sought for the party’s calling operation. The deadline for this is a bit further away – 23 December.

We’re looking for experienced telephony agents who thrive in a target driven environment. This is a rewarding role – you’ll be speaking directly with donors, members and voters. More importantly, your hard work will be actively helping the Party achieve numerous targets in the lead up to the 2015 General Election and beyond.

 Further afield

(but not that far) Tom Brake MP is looking for a caseworker but only until March 2013. The deadline is Wednesday for someone who is:

a hard-working, methodical, patient and tactful individual who is able to work as part of a team but is also self-motivated. Enthusiasm and a sense of humour are essential as are well developed office skills.

Key Tasks

  • Provide advice and support to constituents on a variety of issues through liaison with Government agencies, the voluntary sector and others to resolve matters

  • Provide information, advice and support for individuals on a range of financial, health, housing and other issues

  • Liaise with the appropriate Government agencies, the voluntary sector and others to resolve matters for constituents

  • Draft correspondence

  • Other duties as directed by the Office Manager.

The two jobs outside the London area are for Chris Davies MEP and NW Liberal Democrats, offered together to make one full-time position if desired. Closing date is this coming Thursday, 14 November:

The Liberal Democrats are seeking a highly motivated individual with proven campaigning skills to lead and support the party in winning elections at all levels in the North West Region. Working four days a week within the Federal Elections and Field Team and in conjunction with the Regional Party, the successful candidate will provide expert guidance, co-ordinate key volunteers, and deliver training.

Additionally, Chris Davies MEP is seeking a skilled individual with strong organisational, analytical and database management skills to assist with constituency-based research for one day a week.
