Working for Labour

Labour logo in a squareWant to work for a progressive, professional organisation that really makes a difference? Then think about joining part of a committed, happy team and work with us to help bring about our manifesto pledges and keep Labour in government. Staff work at two head offices - one in Newcastle and one in London. We have 12 other offices throughout England, Scotland and Wales.

The great thing about working for Labour is that the organisation isn’t powered by a profit motive, the staff are motivated and inspired by the principles of the Labour Party making Labour a unique place to work. There are good terms and conditions and excellent holiday entitlement, plus you get the buzz of helping fight elections.

In 2000 Labour was proud to be reaccredited with Investors in People status. The party staff were described as ‘the most committed members of staff [the assessors] had ever come across, across all public and private sector organisations.”

We need people with a variety of skills. Vacancies will be posted here when they arise, so it’ll be worth checking back to find out the latest.
