Job Details

Huntingdon Constituency Conservative Association (HCCA) is looking to appoint a Campaign Manager or Organising Secretary.

The successful applicant will be someone enthusiastic and ambitious, who thrives on a wide-range of competing challenges. Political and campaigning priorities can change quickly, so working hours will of necessity be varied and flexible. This is a “rolling-up-the-sleeves”, do whatever needs to be done, frontline campaigning role.

HCCA is preparing to contest a number of elections in the next two years including for Cambridgeshire County Council, the PCC and Mayoralty in May 2021 and Huntingdonshire District Council in May 2022. The successful applicant will work closely with the Association’s senior volunteers to devise, plan, and execute winning campaigns which increase the number of elected representatives across the constituency.

The varied role of a constituency-based Campaign Manager or Organising Secretary includes responsibility for the following:

  • Recruiting volunteers and building campaign teams
  • Driving an on-going voter contact programme, including phoning and door-to-door canvassing
  • Organising political events
  • Taking the minutes for formal Association meetings
  • Co-ordinating a comprehensive fundraising programme
  • Producing local Party literature and building delivery networks
  • Maintaining and expanding a presence on multiple social media platforms
  • Executing a full ‘get out the vote’ operation on polling day
  • Working with Association Officers in producing and delivering a campaign plan for the Constituency

A Campaign Manager must:

  • Be a self-starter
  • Be well organised, professional and punctual
  • Have strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Be able to lead and motivate colleagues and activists
  • Able to work within a team and autonomously while taking responsibility for fulfilling tasks and meeting deadlines
  • Sympathetic to the aims and values of the Conservative Party
  • Flexible approach to out of hours working patterns

A training programme will be provided.

This role has previously been a full-time position but the Association is open to discussing the possibility of reduced hours, remote working, flexible start and finish times, or compressed hours.

Closing Date: 29 May 2020

Interview/Start Dates

Interviews will take place as soon as possible.
