TRADE UNION LIAISON OFFICER
We are seeking members to fill two vacancies on the executive committee by co-option.
The successful candidates will become full-blown members of the committee taking on the specific remit of the respective positions and participating on the Executive Board which oversees the financial affairs, employment of staff and management of the Party, with the exception of not having voting rights on proposals tabled for a ballot.
We are particularly keen for applicants from PoC, from the North of England, the Midlands, Wales, and/or those with experience of public election, but welcome all applications.
These are voluntary positions and will come up for election at the autumn 2017 Conference.
These are very exciting and rewarding roles at the heart of the Party’s organisation, but are also very demanding and of significance, requiring a great deal of time, commitment and resilience. We will be seeking people with experience and skills related to the jobs applied for.
