Alan Mak MP is seeking a hardworking and motivated individual for the new role of Senior Caseworker based in his Constituency Office in central Havant, Hampshire. The role is full-time (5 days per week) and the successful candidate will join as a new member of an existing casework team. Alan is open to speaking with any outstanding candidate and will therefore consider arrangements that include some flexible working, including some time working from home for part of the working week.

An ideal candidate will be familiar with Alan’s constituency and/or the region, and have knowledge of local issues, but this is not a requirement.

Previous experience in a similar role is strongly preferred.
Duties could include:
• Corresponding with constituents on casework matters;
• Dealing with a variety of both national policy enquiries and individual casework issues;
• Managing constituency and Westminster projects, including stakeholder engagement;
• Providing briefings on constituency and casework matters;
• Managing a portfolio of casework and updating constituent database;
• Developing and progressing major constituency campaigns.

Skills and Values:

• Strong communication and organisational skills, and able to take the initiative;
• Hardworking, flexible, pro-active team player, with the ability to work to tight deadlines;
• Excellent IT Skills (Microsoft Office and internet research);
• Strong attention to detail and an ability to prioritise a demanding workload under pressure;
• Ability to use casework management software;
• Sympathetic to the aims and values of the Conservative Party;
• Full, clean driving licence, and access to own vehicle.

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: 21 October 2022
