I wrote recently on this site about the ConservativeHome manifesto that will be published this autumn, as follows.  “The trinity on our masthead – Homes, Jobs and Savings – will be at the heart of the project.  The manifesto will prioritise the needs of the marginal seats in the north and midlands that the Party needs to win and hold to gain a majority.”

“In particular, it will seek to play a part in widening the Party’s pool of potential voters – and to have a strong pitch to younger voters who don’t vote Conservative, as well as older ones who do – or have done, at any rate.  It will be very much what this site calls a Shoestring Manifesto – in other words, brief, bullet-pointed, and (hopefully) user-friendly.”

To which end, ConservativeHome is looking for numerate, literate graduates with a commitment to forward-thinking Conservative politics. Essential: an aptitude for public policy research. An advantage: a particular interest in housing, employment or personal finance policy.  Please apply here.
