Westminster & City of London Liberal Democrats is Looking for a new Local Party Organiser
Title: Local Party Organiser
Salary: c. £20,000
Westminster Liberal Democrats are looking for a Local Party Organiser to help it meet its potential. In the 2019 European election the Liberal Democrats took more votes than the other main parties combined in the borough with a large membership and the opportunity to make your mark. Westminster comprises two parliamentary seats – one Labour, one Conservative – with a Conservative council, with Labour opposition.
There will be a lot of campaigning to do but we need someone who can do all the work necessary to support that. You will be a self starting and dynamic person able to support on all facets of local party management including volunteer activation, member engagement, communication, website maintenance, literature creation and more. Working with the Executive and membership, you will help to shape and support the local party as it grows and prepares for elections.
You’ll be smart, organised, a self-starter who makes things happen and gets things done. Who’s in command of social media, understands issues, makes the most of technology, picks up the phone to members and can stay on top of a campaign.
Whatever the election, together with our chair, the Executive and the candidates, the right organiser will be at the beating heart. You’ll contribute, be valued, and help to make the difference.
The role is based in an office in the West Hampstead/Kilburn area in a shared office with the opportunity to work from home on occasion.
