Want to help my campaign?

I’m looking to recruit campaign volunteers to support my work as the Member of Parliament for Croydon Central and help my re-election campaign from now until and March 2015. Placements would ideally be for a minimum of two weeks, although given the positons are voluntary those appointed could clearly leave at any point.

Successful applicants will be based at the headquarters of Croydon Conservatives in Purley and gain a detailed insight into both the work of an MP and a political campaign in a highly marginal seat including:

• opinion research;

• production and distribution of campaign literature;

• voter contact;

• data entry; and

• attendance at campaign team meetings.

Ideal candidates will:

• have excellent verbal and written communication skills;

• be self-motivated;

• have an eye for detail;

• be IT literate and;

• have knowledge of, and sympathy for, the aims and policies of the Conservative Party

The role being advertised is a voluntary one. As such, there are no set hours and responsibilities and you should be free to come and go as you wish. All reasonable expenses will be paid for, including lunch and travel.

If you’re interested, then please send a CV and covering letter to Ian Parker at


or call 0208 660 0491 for further information. Please do pass this onto anyone who you feel may want to apply.
