Do you have fundraising experience or web design, press, research and administrative skills?  Whatever your level of experience and however much or little time you can give, we would love to hear from you.

We need lots of enthusiastic, committed and hard-working candidates. We are particularly keen to ensure diversity amongst our candidates. 

Candidates must be paid-up members of the Green Party and support its main aims and policies.
