Job Details

John Stevenson MP is looking to recruit a Caseworker to be part of his constituency office team in Carlisle, Cumbria.

The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic and motivated, with a passion for politics.

Caseworkers must be confident interacting with a wide range of people, both in person and by telephone, and have a clear and concise letter writing style. The role requires the ability to deal with cases sensitively and confidentially.

There is the opportunity for occasional travel to Westminster when necessary.

• Manage and progress a large and varied caseload.
• Liaise with government agencies, voluntary sector and other to resolve cases.

• Assist with project work as required.
• Attend meetings and take minutes as appropriate.
• Provide generalist admin support as required.
• There may be a requirement for the role holder to work outside of the normal working hours and travel for work occasionally.
