Not long before the Prime Minister called the last General Election the Conservative Party started to look to recruit for a number of posts throughout the UK. It could therefore be taken as a sign of yet another election if they started doing such things again.
On Tuesday (27/06/17) they advertised, amongst others, for:
- Political Press Adviser for Conservative Campaign Headquarters
- Media Monitoring Officer for Conservative Campaign Headquarters
Yesterday (28/06/17) they advertised for:
- Campaign Managers – England and Wales for Conservative Campaign
- Borough Campaigners – London for Conservative Campaign Headquarters
The adverts for these roles expire at the end of August which is normally when the interview process would begin, then factoring in that candidates may have a 4 week notice period to serve you’d expect appointments in October.
However, on the advert for Campaign Managers it is stated that “CCHQ will sift and interview candidates as applications are received – on an ongoing basis until further notice. Offers will be made to successful candidates as possible after interview” which makes it sound like they’re in a bit of a rush.
