Who wants to be Lucinda Creighton’s parliamentary assistant?

Lucinda Creighton is on the look out for a new assistant. Do you have what it takes? Step on down.

LUCINDA CREIGHTON IS on the look out for a new parliamentary assistant. Putting the call out on Twitter yesterday, she asked people to spread the word:


Creighton, who voted against the Government in the abortion bill, lost the Fine Gael party whip immediately after voting against the Government in an amendment on the Bill.

It appears she is gearing up to re-enter the political race and wants some new blood in her ranks.

Just like Alan Sugar in The Apprentice, she isn’t looking for just anybody. Ideally, she is looking for a candidate with the following criteria. Does this describe you?

  • Do you have a law/economics background?
  • Are you deeply interested and knowledgeable in current affairs and political developments, both domestically and internationally?
  • Do you have initiative?
  • Do you have a capacity for office management.

Creighton is also looking for someone with campaign experience, though it is believed Creighton is set to be de-selected as a Fine Gael candidate at the next general election.

Speaking to TheJournal.ie last evening, Creighton said she was looking for a hard-worker who was “good with the public”.

She added that she had already received 20 or so applications since the ad went out yesterday morning, and that she was expecting to “a lot more” in the week to come.

If you think you have what it takes for the tough world of politics, then you can send your CV and cover letter to Lucinda.Creighton@oireachtas.ie before 5.00pm on Friday 13 September.

Creighton hopes this date won’t put too many people off as she states:  ”we hope you’re not superstitious!”.
