Political assistants

Local authority political assistants are local government employees who undertake research and provide administrative support for each of the main political groups.

Political assistants are appointed by the political group who may take account of the candidate’s political activities during the selection process, although the posts are politically restricted. Political assistants can offer advice to councillors that local authority officers are prevented from providing.

Bedford Borough Council employs three political assistants each working 37 hours per week. They serve 14 Councillors in the Conservative group, 13 Councillors in the Labour group and 13 Councillors in the Liberal Democrat group.
