Ideally, you will show keen interest in politics, the ability to grasp the intricacies of local institutions and organisations, and a passion for local affairs. Knowledge of court reporting would be an advantage. A degree of experience in photography and video would be also highly regarded.

We want a good team player who can motivate and inspire others, and who will also challenge the status quo and bring fresh ideas to the table.
