An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic individual to join the Scottish Liberal Democrats in the post of Campaign Organiser.

The office location is in Bishopbriggs within easy reach of Glasgow, with excellent train and bus services.
The successful applicant will be well-organised, with a keen interest in politics and campaigning.

The organiser will need a high standard of IT literacy to maintain records on the party’s databases, produce effective campaign literature and develop targeted online messages through email and Facebook. The post-holder will be expected to establish positive working relationships across a range of key individuals, groups and stakeholders.
This role operates on a full-time basis, with some evening and weekend working, for which time off in lieu will be available. We are happy to discuss flexible working options. The post is offered initially on a 12-month contract basis, with a probationary period of 3 months.
