I worked at Liberal Democrats

Pros

The team at HQ are a wonderful mix of lovely people and working during a general election campaign is a fascinating insight.

Cons

Poor pay. Management didn't quite understand how to deal with staff. Low morale. The management and leadership of the party expect a lot more of staff than they can give in return.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your staff and you'll likely retain them better.

    I have been working at Liberal Democrats

    Pros

    Working for the Lib Dems allows you to get an inside perspective of politics and get involved with issues you believe in.

    Cons

    There are hardly any advancement opportunities, your pay could be as low as £18,000 and you'll make very long hours. On top of this, party HQ doesn't understand HR fundamentals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your staff, support them and ensure you keep them informed. Offer better training that caters to staff needs.
