Cross-party group Campaign Together is currently recruiting for two paid freelance roles – Lead Organiser and Organiser. You will be someone that wants to help us mobilise everybody who is not a member of a party, or whose chosen party does not stand a chance in their seat, to campaign together to get rid of this disastrous and dangerous government. We will organise patiently in communities, train ordinary people to become leaders, and mobilise 10,000 canvassers over the course of the campaign, flooding marginal seats and helping beat progressive parties to beat Conservative candidates in 50 parliamentary constituencies across the UK. The Lead Organiser role will be responsible for leading and running the campaign, and liaising with and supporting our voluntary Management Board.
From Campaign Together: Lindsay and her friends run a #StopTheTories phone bank from the comfort of Lindsay’s home!
All you need is a phone and yourself. Campaign Together will give you names, numbers, scripts and some tips for making great calls. You can even get a gang together and make a party of it like Lindsay and her friends in the photo

Something is happening. People are getting ready to take to the streets to stop the Tory landslide. 287 new people…
Campaign Together are talking to people, and they want you to join them. They say…
Real-life conversations – canvassing – have the best chance of getting people out to vote. The 2008 Obama Presidential campaign was won by this model of grassroots organising. Working together outside of traditional party allegiances is the best chance we have of defeating the Tories. In the 2015 Canadian elections, progressives worked together across political parties to defeat the Conservatives. And they won.
Canvassing is a voter contact technique used by political organisations to gauge people’s support for a candidate. It’s the party faithful going street to street, knocking on doors and talking to voters. It’s simple and it works.
We plan to harness the power of canvassing on a massive scale. Through our website, phone calls and face to face meetings, we will mentor, coach and connect progressive voters to the non-Tory candidate most likely to win in their constituency. What’s more, we’ve targeted 25 highly winnable marginal constituencies where we know that we can make all the difference.
Depending on where you live and who you would like to campaign for, we will match you up with one of these areas and parties. We are encouraging everyone to look beyond traditional party allegiances – to stop the Tories by campaigning together and making our voices count.
