The Local Government Association represents local government in England and Wales. The LGA aims to set the political agenda and have a say in the national media on the issues that matter to council members.
The LGA Conservative Group, as one of the political group offices at the LGA, represents Conservative councillors, providing a strong voice within the cross-party LGA and with the Conservative Party at Westminster.
The Conservative Group Office consists of a small team of four who provide wide-ranging and active support to Conservative councillors.
• Support the Conservative Group Lead Members and Conservative councillors on boards and in roles at the LGA
• Work to create and maintain strong relations with the Parliamentary Conservative Party
• Arrange events, meetings and seminars for councillors across the country.
• Send regular communications to Conservative councillors.
You will be working within a small team of four and will be used to being the first point of contact with enquiries and will be expected to prioritise your workload accordingly.
In the fast paced, ever changing world of local government, we are looking for someone who has a flexible approach to work and can adapt to meet changing work requirements.
It goes without saying that you will have real political sensitivity and the ability to work with discretion and confidentiality. An understanding of local and central government is desirable.
We are looking for a dynamic, self starter who can provide support both at a political and administrative level, with excellent oral and written skills.
