Job Title: Constituency Caseworker
Working For: Mark Jenkinson MP (Workington)
Salary: In line with IPSA payscales, commensurate with experience
Length of Contract: Permanent
Mark Jenkinson MP is looking for a constituency caseworker to join his busy team based in Maryport.
Previous experience is an advantage but not necessary. The applicant will be expected to deal directly, both face-to-face and on the telephone, with members of the public, some of whom may be distressed or disadvantaged; a calm and reassuring demeanour is therefore essential.
The applicant should be organised, self-motivated and able to handle a potentially large caseload efficiently and effectively. Good verbal and written communication skills are essential, and a good knowledge of IT and the Microsoft Office suite would be helpful.
Some weekend or evening work is required, accompanying Mark at his regular advice surgeries.
Candidates should be sympathetic to the general aims and values of the Conservative Party.
Upon appointment you will be required to comply with the Baseline Personnel Security Standard, undertaken by the Members’ Staff Verification Office (MSVO). See Members’ Staff Verification Office (MSVO) page for further info. MPs generally pay staff in accordance with IPSA guidelines.
Closing Date: 16 January 2022
Interviews will take place following receipt of CVs and the applicant will be expected to start as soon as possible following offer. Job offers may be made prior to the closing date.
Please apply with a copy of your CV, accompanied by a covering letter, to email@example.com
