James Murray is looking for full-time Senior Parliamentary Assistant to support his work in Westminster, including his parliamentary business, media work, meetings with stakeholders, and correspondence with constituents and organisations about policy matters.

He is also looking for a part-time Senior Policy Researcher to support his work across a range of policy issues that affect his constituency and his work in Parliament, including those he leads on as the Shadow Financial Secretary to the Treasury. As a part-time role, it may be well suited to someone with another part-time job or in academic research.
