Length of Contract: Permanent
Kensington, Chelsea & Fulham Conservatives (KCFC) is a vibrant and thriving Conservative Association covering two high-profile Parliamentary constituencies. Our campaigning ahead of this year’s Council elections will cover both Conservative-controlled Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, and Labour-held Hammersmith and Fulham.
We are looking for someone with proven campaign management, organisational and project management skills, combined with self-assuredness and strong interpersonal skills, to join our team and lead on the delivery of campaigns across both Boroughs in the run up to May.
You will need to be a self-starter, able to work on your own initiative and committed to the positive, supportive and collaborative culture that KCFC aims to uphold.
Reporting to the KCFC Chairman, you will be in overall control of the Association office, its staff and its day-to-day operations. You will be a key point of contact within the Association, responsible for providing operational support to the KCFC Board, members, elected representatives and ward committees. You will also be responsible for handling enquiries from members of the public.

• A record of success in previous roles and, in particular, in the contributions you have made to past campaigns.
• Planning, delivery and management of a significant political campaign.
• Tact, discretion and respect for confidentiality.
• Excellent organisational and time-management skills, including the ability to prioritise tasks and work under pressure with attention to detail.
• Good knowledge of the main social media platforms and familiarity with the use and management of web sites.
• Good team-working skills and the confidence to lead and motivate people; the ability to manage your own workload and supervise the work of others concurrently.
• Excellent interpersonal, oral and written communication skills.
• Flexibility and adaptability to changing workloads, with a problem-solving approach.
• Competent working with budgets and financial aspects of the Association.
• Sympathy with the aims and objectives of the Conservative Party.
