LUCINDA CREIGHTON IS hiring a secretarial assistant.

The TD for Dublin South East has outlined that “tact, discretion and confidentiality are paramount to this role”.

Creighton is a member of the Reform Alliance, a group made up of seven expelled and former Fine Gael TDs.

The group held a ‘monster meeting’ last month, where well over a thousand people turned out.

There’s still no confirmation on whether or not the RA will form a political party.

However the former policy advisor to David Cameron, Philip Blond, went along to the meeting and advised them to start a political party in the next nine months, adding “go for it and win”.

Creighton says she plans on running in the next general election.

In her ad, she said she is looking for a candidate who is “highly organised and efficient with an outgoing, friendly personality, who is happy to work as part of a small but dedicated team”.

A full list of the duties and requirements for the role can be found here.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday the 10 February.
