Job Title: Press Secretary for Leader of the Liberal Democrats

Working For: Liberal Democrats

Location: London

Salary: Competitive

Job Details

We are seeking a talented and highly motivated individual to join the newly established office of Rt Hon Sir Vince Cable MP, leader of the Liberal Democrats. This is an exciting opportunity to support the continued growth of the party and ensure the new leader achieves his objectives, of ensuring that the voice of liberal, tolerant and outward looking Britain is heard at a time when the damaging consequences of Brexit must be challenged.

The Press Secretary reports to the Chief of Staff and is responsible for maximising positive coverage for the Leader, in all print, broadcast and social media, consistently over time. It also involves contributing to the coordinated media strategy for the party as a whole. The role requires an acute news sense, excellent verbal and written communication, sharp political judgement and clear thinking under pressure. An understanding of the workings of the Parliamentary Lobby and an appreciation of the impact of new media on political communications would also be an advantage.

Closing Date: 25 August 2017
