Job Title: Blog Writers
Working For: TalkPolitics
Salary: Voluntary (part-time role)
TalkPolitics is a bi-partisan, cross-party think-tank and campaign group with an over-riding aim to tackle political apathy, and the root causes of it, particularly amongst young people. We believe that it is essential to Western ideals of representative democracy to:
- Defend and extend free speech and get the vote out.
- Drastically improve political awareness and education in the UK.
- Tackle the bad image politics gets and make it accessible to all.
