The Campaign Co-ordinator will play a pivotal role in delivering the campaign strategy and plan in Welwyn Hatfield and across a number of areas in Hertfordshire.
Welwyn Hatfield Lib Dems are on a clear upward trajectory. In this year’s local elections, we held three seats and gained a further three - returning the biggest Lib Dem group ever on Welwyn Hatfield borough council.
Across Hertfordshire, the Lib Dems are just as successful. We are the official opposition on the County Council, we control Three Rivers Council and Watford Council as well as hold the Mayoral seat.
We need someone who can coordinate candidates, help deliver the campaign mechanics and motivate volunteers. The role will focus on supporting the design and production of campaign literature and delivery, as well as the co-ordination of action days and training.
