Political Party jobs range from Parliamentary Assistants, Researchers, Caseworkers and Communications Officers. Although job titles may vary across the parties, many of the responsibilities are the same.

What skills are needed?

Working for a political party requires a broad range of skills including communication, research, organisation, an understanding of how parliaments work and a sound knowledge of politics and policy.

Working Conditions and Pay

Political jobs usually involve being based in a busy office environment either at a Parliament or in the politicians constituency. Constituency office working can also involve working some evenings and weekends. The job can be stressful but also rewarding and interesting.

Pay scales for political jobs vary depending on experience and who you work for. Although there are suggested pay scales politicians have discretion to set pay for their employees and don’t always follow it given they have limited budgets to spend on staff. The average salary for a Parliamentary Assistant is around £23,000 per annum although this can rise to around £50,000 for Special Advisors to senior politicians.

Career Prospects

Outside of the party career, prospects include many public affairs/policy jobs such as working for lobbying companies, political consultancy firms, pressure groups, think tanks or trade unions. Other career opportunities include working for Independent Public Bodies, the media or educational or research institutions.
