After the success of the 2019 elections, there is another exciting opportunity for a Campaign Assistant to work for the Broadland District Liberal Democrats. The local party is gearing up for county council elections in 2021 where they will be looking to gain seats on the council from the Conservatives. At the same time of course there exists a strong possibility of a General Election and we are responsible for the two constituencies of Broadland and Norwich North.
The Campaign Assistant will play a central role within the local party reporting to the Chair of the Campaigns Group, liaising with the Chair of the local Executive. The role presents an opportunity to develop skills in a District, which is Conservative facing with a few Labour councillors, with a recently enhanced strong Liberal Democrat presence.
The Campaign Assistant will be primarily an outreach worker, using office facilities shared with a neighbouring local party.
Help implement previous agreed strategies, which will put PPCs, Councillors, Candidates and Activists at the front of all campaigning.
