Campaign Internship at West Kent Towers

A chance to work with the West Kent Campaign Team 

If anyone knows someone who may interested, we need a part-time paid intern during March and April. The job will be far from glamorous - just "mucking in" when and where needed and helping Jonathan Botten and me manage 5 parliamentary and 180 local government election campaigns. 

The type of jobs: helping manage and data capture the mountain of VI data we will be processing, dropping off supplies with candidates and activists, running street stalls with candidates and volunteers, checking accuracy of nomination papers, running to Costa Coiffee 5 times a day for the grumpy Agent's extra shot Americano, opening and sorting the post (we receive 300+ items per day), managing teams of envelope packers, helping erect correx posters and more... 

The West Kent Campaign HQ is fast, furious, damned hard work, long hours under incredible pressure and stress. I think it's fair to say that if you are looking for a peaceful environment with "good karma" and serene atmosphere, this probably isn't the job for you! 

We will pay the National Minimum Wage and reimburse any reasonable out of pocket expenditure. Our location between Greggs and a Greasy Spoon results in a plentiful supply of bacon sandwiches and sticky buns. The office is in Paddock Wood (a small town between Tunbridge Wells and Tonbridge). Paddock Wood had a mainline railway station which is two minutes walk from the office and an hour journey from London - Charing X. 

If you are interested, drop me an email and tell me why you'd like to join our team for the coming election. I look forward to hearing from you.
