Job Title: Head of Campaigns
Working For: Bath and North East Somerset Liberal Democrats
Location: Bath, with travel around Bath, North East Somerset and Frome
Salary: £33,000 pa
Length of Contract: Initially to September 2025 with the expectation of extension of a permanent contract
An exciting role has arisen for a highly competent and experienced campaigner with a proven track record of winning elections for the Liberal Democrats.
You will manage campaigns in one of the country’s leading local parties that are in control of B&NES Council and the Bath MP, who has the biggest Lib Dem majority in the House of Commons. Boundary changes will also see the new Frome & East Somerset constituency join our local party this winter. Following the sensational Somerton & Frome by-election win this summer you will help this new constituency elect a Lib Dem MP.
You will manage any other campaign staff based in our Bath city centre office: between one and three members of staff depending on the stage of the campaign.
A natural motivator of people, you will inspire our volunteers across B&NES and will have both the strategic mind and practical skills to deliver a win for the Liberal Democrats.
This role is suitable for a long-term post-holder, or as an opportunity to develop further your campaigning track record and transferable skills. Previous post-holders have gone on to work in regional and national campaigns, also to work in the UK Parliament, European Parliament, as Charity CEOs, law firm managers, Directors of Think Tanks and national pressure groups, and to hold elected office including a Council Deputy Leader.
If you need to relocate, we can, on request, put short term arrangements in place where you stay with a local party member whilst you look for accommodation.
