Our friends at the LGA Liberal Democrat Group are recruiting a Political Assistant to work at their HQ in Local Government House. Smith Square, Westminster.
The LGA is the national voice of local government which seeks to support, promote and improve councils across England and Wales.
We are a politically-led organisation and are looking for a political assistant to work in our Liberal Democrat Group Office. You will work in a fast-paced, high-pressure environment, advising and supporting Liberal Democrat councillors, working on a daily basis with councillors, Peers, MPs and other senior politicians on a range of issues of importance to local government.
Based in the LGA’s offices in the heart of Westminster, you will have experience of working in a political environment, and an understanding of local government, public policy work and parliamentary procedures. You will have excellent written and oral communication skills and a very high degree of political sensitivity. You should be able to work at your own initiative, at the same time as being a team player within a key sector trade body
