Oh to be a SpAd huh?

Interesting, the Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, John Denham, is looking for a SpAd to assist in policy review and general work of shadowing the Business, Innovation and Skills department.
  • The successful candidate will need:
  • A strong knowledge of public policy as well as Parliamentary and political processes,
  • A strong record of research and policy development in a fast moving environment,
  • Excellent media skills with a record of working in a high-paced media environment,
  • Possess excellent communication skills with the ability to prepare written and oral briefings for senior stakeholders,
  • Have substantive experience working within a political environment, and
  • Possess exceptional organisational and decision making skills.
So, no business knowledge required for a job that will involve formulating Labour business policy!

Surely though there should be a skill requirement for the ability to spot a hidden microphone though?
