Adam Holloway MP is seeking a part-time caseworker to be based in his Westminster office. (We will also consider applications for a full time caseworker role [maternity cover], to begin in early March)

Responsibilities 

  • Responding to queries from constituents on general policy queries and constituency casework issues 

  • Providing constituents with information, advice and support over the telephone and in writing 

  • Liaising with Government agencies, voluntary groups and local businesses 

  • Accompanying Adam in the constituency and at other meetings as appropriate 

  • Recording records and information confidentially and in line with the Data Protection Act 

  • Carrying out such other duties as may be required to support the efficient running of Adam’s office 

Required skills 

  • Excellent written and oral communication skills with a good telephone manner and attention to detail 

  • Ability to work independently and take ownership of caseload 

  • Well organised with an ability to prioritise workload and work efficiently under pressure 

  • A team player with a good sense of humour is vital in our hard working, happy office 

  • The office primarily deals with constituency casework and the role might not be suitable for candidates with their own political ambitions – we are not looking for a Tory boy/girl. 

 

 

  • A genuine interest in helping the constituents is essential.  

  • Candidates should be sympathetic to the aims and values of the Conservative Party

Interview/Start Dates 

Interviews as soon as possible and start date 7th January 2019. We may appoint before the closing date if the right candidate is found.
