Purpose of the job

The Liberal Democrats are seeking a professional and well-organised Standards Officer to support and advise party officers responsible for overseeing standards and discipline, and for resolving complaints and disputes.  The post-holder will deal with questions which may arise concerning the Liberal Democrats constitutions, internal rules and procedures.

The Standards Officer will support the recruitment and training of party members to perform designated functions including conciliation, mediation, arbitration, investigation and adjudication.

We are looking for someone with a strong intellect, independent mind, integrity, discretion and probity.  Because of the need for absolute impartiality in supporting functions of this nature, the position will operate semi-independently from the usual chain of command within Lib Dem HQ.

Liberal International Executive (Volunteer)

The Liberal Democrats are entitled to two voting representatives on the Executive of Liberal Internationalthe worldwide family of Liberal parties, whose headquarters are based in London. One position has been filled. 

Candidates for the vacant position should have a strong interest in key areas of Liberal International's work (which includes Human Rights, Climate Justice, International Trade and Fighting Disinformation) as well as a solid understanding of Liberal Democrat policy priorities. Candidate applications will be assessed by the members of the Federal Board. 

Typically there are two (daytime) meetings of the Executive each year as well as a session at the Liberal International Congress, which occurs approximately every 18 months. In normal times, these take place in different cities around the world (in 2019 they happened in Athens and Fes), only occasionally in London. Because of the current COVID-19 situation the next meeting will be a brief online administrative session of the Congress on the afternoon of 20 October. The next physical congress is likely to take place in Sofia next year.

Executive reps are currently responsible for the cost of their own travel, accommodation and registration fee, though that situation may change. Any member of the Party may apply. The successful candidates will serve a term that ends 31st December 2022. 

The Liberal Democrats are committed to diversity and inclusion and we welcome applications from candidates from all walks of life.
