Managing the out-of-Parliament / constituency office of Nicola Willis, you'll make sure everything runs smoothly day in and day out. This role is a varied and multifaceted one. First, you'll be responsible for building the communications plan and developing ways to engage with your local community. You'll identify media opportunities and become an expert in relevant subjects so that Nicola is always well briefed and up to date. Second, as a sole charge office you will be managing the day to day office management - from reception services and dealing with correspondence, to supporting your MP build relationships with local stakeholders and researching issues when required. Thirdly, you'll be the go-to person for people from the community who may need advice, have issues, or want to talk over anything of note within the electorate, whether it's over the phone or in person.

You've got a firm grasp of the current political landscape and where your electorate sits within it. You're someone who's proactive and willing to roll their sleeves up and get things done. You're well known for your ability to build respectful and trusting relationships with a diverse range of people. Needless to say, you have a high level of empathy and cultural sensitivity and no matter who you're engaging with, you leave them feeling supported and valued. You're happy to work autonomously and are well known for your resilient and unflappable nature.

You'll be stepping into an environment that is unique, exciting, and rewarding. This really is a role unlike any other and if you're passionate about giving back and helping your community, it's right up your alley. As an organisation, it's extremely important to us that our people feel supported and are given the opportunity to continue to grow and develop their knowledge and their careers.

This role is for 20-25 hours per week. There is provision for some flexibility in how you mange those hours across the week. This is an events-based, fixed-term role linked to the Member of Parliament.
