Purpose of the Job
A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen to work for the Liberal Democrats in their top target seat in the UK.
This is an ideal position for someone who wants experience in working in politics and campaigns.
East Dunbartonshire is located within easy reach of Glasgow City Centre to the south and the Loch Lomond National Park to the North. Its proximity to Glasgow and the stunning countryside of Scotland make it an ideal place to relocate.
Missing out by just 149 votes in 2019, East Dunbartonshire is the Liberal Democrats top target seat in the UK. As Volunteer Manager, you will play a leading role in delivering the campaigns we need to secure the election of a Liberal Democrat MP and to elect a Liberal Democrat councillor in every ward in the seat.
