Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Liberal Democrats are seeking a Volunteers Organiser to help further build our volunteer campaign organisation that has delivered brilliant results in local and national elections in recent years.
Since taking control of South Cambridgeshire District Council in 2018, Cambridgeshire Lib Dems have had a consistent run of success: coming within 3,000 votes of taking the South Cambridgeshire constituency in the 2019 General Election, taking the leadership of Cambridgeshire County Council in a joint administration in 2021, and in 2022, making the gains to take the leadership of Huntingdonshire District Council in a joint administration, and making further gains in South Cambridgeshire to hold 37 of the 45 District Council seats.
The Volunteers Organiser role is a fantastic opportunity to lead the work of building the infrastructure and organisation necessary to make further gains in East Cambridgeshire District Council elections in 2023 as well as elect at least one Lib Dem MP in Cambridgeshire at the next General Election and further gains at Cambridgeshire County Council in 2025.
This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced person who is motivated and keen to see the Liberal Democrats succeed.
