Vote for Policies Placement

Nathan, a Vote for Policies volunteer gathers vox pops at our recent eventVote for Policies is looking for a volunteer for a part-time 1-month placement to support the campaign, culminating in our election night party on May 7th.

We are an independent, non-profit organisation that helps people to compare policies without knowing which party they belong to. The service has been crowd-funded by over 900 individuals and has an active and growing base of volunteers from around the UK. We recently held an event on Policies or Personality at Birkbeck in London and have been mentioned in the media from the Evening Standard to BBC Question Time. We’ve even been recommended by celebrities like Thom Yorke, Caitlin Moran and Paloma Faith.

We’re looking for someone to join the team in the run up to the general election who will support the survey to reach as many people as possible before May 7th.

The placement

On your placement with us, you will work 1-2 days a week in exchange for work experience, training and expenses. You will be involved in all aspects of our work joining a small team and working closely with the Campaign Manager and Founder.

You will work on social media, help us to organise events and provide regular support for the campaign at its busiest time. You will be part of the team, working at an office in Seven Sisters, London, and be asked to contribute to our in-house discussions, where your opinions will matter.

If you are enthusiastic, communicative, friendly, reliable and like the idea of working with Vote for Policies, have a look through our website, the survey, at our blog and read our methodology to see if we’re a good fit for you.
