Candidate Approval Support


Lots of people want to be MPs and the Conservative Party is about to begin creating its “approved list” by inviting all those who were previously on it to re-apply. This is the first step of the journey, to being an MP and must be done, long before the stage of being considered by actual constituencies. 

So, just what does it take to get that stamp of approval? And why is it a good idea to get help to do so?

Gary Player, the South African golfer, had a reputation as a “lucky golfer”. When asked once by a reporter whether his latest success was down to his famous luck, his riposte was, “Yeah. But you know what? The more I practice, the luckier I get.” Player also had a coach and in elite sports today, who doesn’t?

If you want to be the best, you need to train, be coached, identify strengths and weaknesses and polish your performance. That is why getting professional help with your application is no different from an elite athlete employing a coach. We will help you, be a better you!

This is, in effect, a job application. Politics is not a hobby when you want to be an MP. You are expected to do several jobs as part of the role. Do you know what they are? Have you got relevant skills or experience to be able to do them? What are the gaps in your knowledge that you might want to work on. 

And with politics, it is probably even harder than getting a job. The people you need to convince are hardened political activists and MPs themselves. They want to know that they are equipping their team with the best possible players. You will need to show why you are a Conservative and demonstrate how you have got involved with campaigns on issues you feel passionate about and delivered results.

You will need to know yourself and be confident about your strengths and weaknesses and the personal attributes. You will need to honestly appraise your own past actions when faced with challenges and difficult decisions and to put these across, succinctly and clearly to make sure you stand out in a crowded field.

A professional coach will be able to take the talents and experiences you already have and polish these to ensure you get through to the next stage.
