West Kent Conservatives will soon be recruiting at least one, possibly two, Campaign Interns to assist during the 2014 Local and EU elections, with a high possibility of a full time position being available later in the year (our last three interns were all placed in full-time paid positions, either in Parliament or internally).
We pay interns a basic wage plus travel costs. Hours can be flexible to fit around study or other employment related commitments, but we will require at least two/three days per week. You will be based in the new West Kent Campaign HQ in Paddock Wood. The Office is 2 minutes walk from Paddock Wood railway station.
Please register your interest by sending a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please ensure that you list (either on your CV or separately) your direct campaign related experience (please be honest - I have been around 25 years and I know enough people to check the reality!) Please also provide two references (Association Officer, AME member, Member of the Party Board, Conservative Councillor, Member of Parliament or similar).
West Kent is a vibrant and progressive campaign unit looking after five Conservative Associations, five MPs, 200 Conservative Councillors and nearly 2,500 party members in Tunbridge Wells, Chatham & Aylesford, Tonbridge & Malling, Maidstone & The Weald and Faversham & Mid Kent constituencies. We also offer strategic political advice to three LG Conservative Groups and Campaign Support to several neighbouring marginal constituencies. Our office is constantly busy, stressful, noisy, boisterous, fun - and not for the faint hearted!
