We withdrew the new jobs system after unacceptable problems with its performance. Relaunch in July when we can be sure of its reliability.

We have published a list of all current jobs that were live on the new system and are not being shown in the reinstated system.

See the list of current jobs not in the main database

W4MP apologises for the difficulties this has caused.

"You provide a unique and fantastic service. Without this website, I would not have got either my initial internship or the job that has just been offered me. For over year now I have attempted to get work in the political world, and without you I would not have known where to look. Now I'm using the website for advice on how to do the job. Thank you."
