The Conservative Group for Europe wishes to recruit a Campaign Executive to:
· Develop a stronger media presence for CGE including responding to the news agenda, building relationships with journalists and supporting CGE spokespeople for media interviews;
· Promote the CGE website as a resource for CGE members and the media by producing and sourcing written and video material and enhancing CGE’s presence on social media;
· Mobilise members to campaign within the Conservative Party and more generally through co-ordination and the dissemination of briefing materials;
· Support CGE and Young CGE members in organising events, especially outside of London
As a members’ association, CGE is organised on a day to day basis through an Executive Committee, supported by a part-time Administrator and a Parliamentary Researcher.
The Campaign Executive will need to work and liaise with these individuals and with the Officers and Executive Committee Members; support the CGE at occasional events with partner organisations, both in and outside of London; and service the Group’s Executive and General Purposes Committees.
The role requires good writing, communication and organisational skills; basic IT and digital skills; experience with media, including social media, and with campaigning within the Conservative Party.
The appointee may need to work primarily from home.
Interested candidates should send their CV with an appropriate cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 19 April.
