Job Title: Constituency Support Officer (incl some casework)
Working For: Rt Hon Esther McVey (Tatton)
Location: Wilmslow, Cheshire
Salary: FTQ £25,000
Length of Contract: Initially 6 months- but hoping to make permanent
This role is 3 days a week (9am-5pm) primarily to support the work the MP does within the community. There is some flexibility on the days but they will be Monday-Rriday. It is based within the constituency office and we aren't offering home working as standard.
The role will involve inviting constituents to events, planning those events and making sure they go well as well as contacting organisations and updating them on things that are happening. There is an expectation that this person will also pick up some casework in support of the casework team, who deal with a substantial volume of incoming correspondence, as well as dealing with the day to day interactions with local residents.
The variety in the role is what makes it interesting but for that reason, we are looking for someone who enjoys meeting people, is confident to support the MP and has strong administrative skills- as the role will involve use of outlook, basis spreadsheets, word and our bespoke casework system. You need to have a reasonable standard of written english.
An interest in people is key as it the ability to work within a team. Some of our best team members come from unusual backgrounds so you don't necessarily need to have worked in a political environment before.
Closing Date: 23 September 2022
Interviews at a mutually agreed time. Start as soon as the candidate is available
