The History of Parliament has a vacancy for a Public Engagement Assistant to join our small but busy communications team to maintain and further develop our public presence via our website (http://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/ ), social media and to contribute to the expansion of our projects and outreach activities in and through Parliament, education, and the voluntary sector.

The History of Parliament is one of the largest and most comprehensive research projects in British History.  Our published volumes provide summary biographies of Members of Parliament, surveys of politics and elections in each constituency, and introductory material, and so far cover periods from the fourteenth century to the nineteenth.  We are currently working on periods in the fifteenth, seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Most of our work has also been published on our website, which we are currently redeveloping and expanding. The project has an active presence on social media and undertakes a lively programme of events and outreach activities.

We’re looking for someone with excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, a strong interest in history and some experience in writing for/managing non-personal social media and websites and other engagement and outreach activities. The appointment is offered initially on a fixed-term basis for two years.
