Alongside the job adverts for Lib Dem Membership Development Manager and Research Officer and Parliamentary Assistant for Tim Farron, here’s another one – to be the new Lib Dem Head of Press.

Salary: £35,000 per annum
Benefit: 8% Employer’s Pension Contribution

The Head of Press will lead a small but effective media team to promote the Liberal Democrats and the party Leader Tim Farron in regional and national media. You will be expected to lead the party’s mission to secure daily coverage in national and regional print, broadcast and online news media.
As a key player in the wider Liberal Democrat team, the Head of Press will take a significant role in the rebuilding and fightback of Liberal Democrats, offering creative and engaging ideas, and take a leading role in interacting with journalists and key influencers on social media.
This role will be focused on delivering positive coverage for the party and for candidates of all levels across the United Kingdom, as well as be able to inspire best practice to help volunteers support the party’s media operation.
The Head of Press will also take a lead in managing crisis communications, and have a clear ability to work well under pressure.
