Liberal Democrats

Head of Campaigns - Scotland

We are looking for a strong campaigner who will build on the Lib Dem successes of 2016 and 2017 in Scotland.

We’re looking for a strong, inspiring leader of campaigns with excellent communication and organisational skills to drive our campaigning in Scotland in the coming years. The successful applicant will have a record of managing campaign success and a strong understanding of political messaging and of what it takes to win an election.

Key to this role is the ability to build relationships, inspire and develop volunteer teams – building self-sufficient campaigning organisations at every level. Experience in training or mentoring is an advantage.

When it comes to campaigning, you’ll be equally at ease whether you’re using social media, verbal or printed communications to get your message to the voters. You’ll be someone who is inherently curious about what works best, be willing to try new things and will be able to make the most of data to make the right strategic decisions.

This role involves working across several levels of government and the ability to communicate well with stakeholders is another key ability.

Finally, you will be well organised, possess a good temperament that allows you to cope with the unexpected and be able to work without supervision in a challenging environment.
