The Conservative Party is a voluntary organisation. All political parties fundamentally depend on the hard work offered by volunteers who share the aims and values of the Party. Where we ask for volunteers to join our campaigning team, they are treated entirely as volunteers, not workers. There is no obligation on them to work. Such involvement is a great way to get a new generation involved in politics and our democratic process.

You will be based in our office in Gainsborough (four minutes walk from Gainsborough Bus Station), and will gain an insight into a political campaign environment, with its fast changing priorities.

This post is unremunerated and no expenses will be paid for travel or food costs; an exception may be made for other items where agreed to in advance by the Organising Secretary.

  • Campaign literature production and distribution
  • Management of volunteers
  • Necessary research and data entry
  • Fundraising activities
  • Campaign strategy and stakeholder engagement

Skills and capabilities:

  • Have excellent verbal and written communication skills
