We are looking for one part-time position in Edinburgh:
The Electoral Reform Society is the UK’s leading voice for democratic reform.
We operate on a simple premise – that politics can be better than it is. We work with everyone – from political parties, civil society groups and academics, to our own members and supporters and the wider public – to campaign for a better democracy in the UK.
Our vision is of a democracy fit for the 21st century, where every voice is heard, every vote is valued equally, and every citizen is empowered to take part. We make the case for lasting political reforms, we seek to embed democracy into the heart of public debate, and we foster the democratic spaces which encourage active citizenship.
The ERS recognises and values diversity, and we particularly welcome applicants from backgrounds which are under-represented in politics.
