We are looking for a proactive and skilled communications professional to help deliver a high-quality regulatory advice service for the Electoral Commission.

This is an exciting time to join the team as the UK Government’s Elections Act 2022 introduces significant changes to the electoral system, including a number of measures that affect parties and campaigners that come into force on 23 November 2022.
