Campaign Director for the Joint Committee of the Ulster Unionist Party and the Conservative Party

In preparation for their first joint foray into an election in modern times, the Ulster Unionists and Tories are advertising for a Campaign Director.

According to the job description, the successful candidate will be employed with a view to focusing "primarily on the European Election Campaign, the selection of candidates for the General Election, and preparing for and executing a General Election campaign for Northern Ireland."

The successful candidate must also display "good interpersonal skills and a sense of humour." I wonder how that could be displayed in a CV.

The closing date for applications is 26th February- if it takes say three weeks to arrange interviews and a further month for the person picked to work out their notice, that leaves roughly another month before the European elections. In at the deep end, eh?
