Job Details

The Kent Conservative Group is looking to recruit a number of Campaign Interns to support our member Associations and Parliamentary Candidates in the build up to, and during, the next General Election.

Successful applicants will be based in our modern and spacious office in Paddock Wood, but with the understanding that travel across Kent will be necessary to assist in the delivery of campaigns.

This internship is an excellent opportunity for the successful candidate(s) to gain experience in the world of politics, to develop skills and enhance their CV, and to build relationships with senior politicians in the county.

If successful, you will assist with:

- The production of campaign materials, such as leaflets;
- The organisation of campaign days;
- Research and strategy;
- Data entry;
- Volunteer management;
- Social media advice and assistance;
- General administration and the running of Association affairs.

As such, the ideal candidate will have the following skills:

- Excellent verbal and written communication;
- Good attention to detail;
- Highly organised and self-motivated;
- A thorough understanding of the Microsoft Office suite, and IT skills in general.
- A demonstrable knowledge and sympathy for the aims and policies of the Conservative Party.

A number of previous Campaign Interns have gone on to work for senior politicians. Successful applicants can expect to receive on-the-job training, a large amount of responsibility early on, and an inside-perspective on a fascinating time in British political history.

The Kent Conservative Group is the largest Conservative Grouping in the country, covering eight Associations, including: Canterbury, Chatham & Aylesford, Faversham & Mid Kent, Gravesham, Maidstone & Malling, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, and the Weald of Kent.
