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?
