Position description

The Chamber and Participation Team (CPT) brings together all the disciplines that support the House of Commons Chamber within one coherent structure – the procedural offices that facilitate the core function of legislating, the operational teams who focus on ensuring that the Chamber runs effectively and efficiently, and the public-facing teams who promote Parliament’s role and seek to engage citizens across the UK with parliamentary business.

 

The Role

The Campaigns Assistant sits within the Education and Engagement Team who deliver face-to-face and online educational programmes and learning resources for schools, teachers, home educators and school-age children across the UK. We also manage engagement activities and campaigns that target the broader UK population, prioritising people and communities who are statistically less engaged with Parliament and Members’ work. Our well-established public engagement activities continue to expand. Over 1 million people participate in outreach and engagement activities across the UK through workshops, events and the annual UK Parliament Week.

This role would suit someone who is passionate about delivering innovative events and campaigns that engage people with the UK Parliament’s work and Members. This role supports the planning and delivery of the team’s projects through administrative support, content creation, data analysis, copy writing and other tasks.

Some key responsibilities for this role include;

  •  Provide administrative support to the Campaigns team
  •  Draft engaging communications suitable for a range of audiences and platforms
  •  Management of the UK Parliament Week website
  •  Data recording and maintenance for UK Parliament Week and other projects
  •  Develop engaging, audience relevant content to support engagement opportunities and campaigns

Skills and Experience

 

The successful candidate will have the following skills/experience:

  •  Enthusiasm for engaging the public with the work of UK Parliament.
  •  Good communication skills with the ability to express information in a clear way, and tailor messages for different audiences.
  •  Good IT skills with the capacity to master new skills, including content management systems, design software and analytical tools.
  •  Effective organisation, prioritisation and time management skills with the ability to work flexibly within a team to deliver high quality services. 
  •  Good interpersonal skills and the ability to deal with a variety of stakeholders while upholding the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion.

 

Why Join 

 

In addition to your salary, we offer an attractive range of benefits including:

  • 30 days’ annual leave (increasing to 35 days after first full leave year).
  • Civil Service Pension scheme.
  • Access to training and development.
