This is a busy, full-time role, at least until Simon gets rolled by Judith, so skills in prioritising competing demands are essential. Some flexibility in hours will be required, including weekends and the role will involve some domestic travel mainly to Invercargill as the party works out what to do with the local MP.
Don’t even think about applying Cameron.
