Coordinator posts – Non-Executive Committee member posts

The members of a local CLP elect coordinators to help it do important work in crucial areas. This might be for specific activities such as assisting with websites or information technology, taking minutes, organising social events or engaging with particular groups of members and the community, such as students or the business community. They might also work closely with an Executive Officer; for example, the Fundraising coordinator might work closely with the Treasurer.

All coordinator posts are capable of being job shared. So if you would like to play a more active part but would like to share that responsibility, you can find yourself a job-share partner, and both apply to be nominated. Please indicate whether you wish to job share and the name of your co-job sharer. Both should complete a separate nomination form.

Eligibility: For all posts – you must be a fully paid-up member of the Labour Party and have completed your eight-week probationary period. For the position of Student Lead, you must be under 27 and a student at the time of election.

Auditors

The role of the Auditor is to inspect the CLPs annual statement of accounts prepared by the Treasurer before the General Meeting of the CLP approves them. The Treasurer produces an annual Statement of Accounts. This has to be approved by a general meeting in the first quarter of the following year and forwarded to Labour’s Governance and Legal Unit by 30 April. So the work of an auditor is time-limited (1 to 2 hours) and mainly occurs in February. Auditors are not members of the Executive Committee.

Ward Officers

This is a new idea and an opportunity for members to help without feeling the burden of an “official” officer role. Ward officers will get involved in helping out in a “ward”. You are not limited to volunteering for the ward you live in.

We hope Ward Officers will significantly help the campaign team and Labour Councillors. They can help organise members in the ward to deliver leaflets, highlight local issues, or do other activities like helping out on a polling day or even social events in a ward.

You can shape this role according to your skills and time. You will not be alone; you will be part of a team and get the help and support you need. If you know someone who would like to buddy up with you to help, that would be great too.

Ward Officers

Please use this form to volunteer
  • Let us know which Ward you would like to volunteer in or if there is some one you know would like to buddy up with you to do this
