Job Description

Managing the office of Priyanca Radhakrishnan's, you'll make sure everything runs smoothly day in and day out. This role is a varied and multifaceted one. First, you'll be handling the administrative side of things in the office - from reception services and dealing with correspondence, to offering the support your MP needs and researching issues when required. Second, you'll be responsible for the communications plan and engaging with your local community through social media channels while managing communication resources such as press releases and radio interviews. 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 appreciate the sometimes unpredictable nature of this environment and instead of letting it faze you, you thrive on it - putting your proactive, calm, and flexible personality to good use. It goes without saying you're someone who's empathetic and respectful, and you're confident in building strong relationships with a diverse range of people. 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 40 hours per week. Some flexibility in hours may be required, particularly when the House is sitting. This is an events-based, fixed-term role linked to the Member of Parliament.

So what do you think? If you'd like to play an important in supporting your MP and helping your electorate, apply now.
