The post-holder will report directly to the Regional Secretary and will work collaboratively with GMB’s wider Political team in advancing the union’s industrial aims through effective organisation at local government and constituency levels.
The successful candidate will possess strong knowledge of the industrial relations landscape, the structures and organisation of local government, the Labour Party and trade unions, and will be able to build relationships in these areas to advance the union’s objectives.
