Scottish National Party

2015 - Present

 

Shortly after the independence referendum of 2014 I was recruited by the brilliant team at Scottish National Party HQ as Head of Digital.

In November 2014 Nicola Sturgeon became First Minister and we organised a rally at Glasgow's The SSE Hydro. It was the largest indoor political event in British history with around 12,000 attendees. 

The SNP's membership reached over 110,000 by March 2015, an increase of over 80,000 in under 6 months. 1 in 34 people of voting age in Scotland are now members. 

In May 2015 we won 56 of Scotland's 59 Westminster seats, an absolute majority and 50 seat gain.

In October 2015 we launched the new SNP website and campaigning platform in preparation for the Scottish Parliament election. Within a little over a month it reached 1 million page views.

In May 2016 we won a historic third term in government at the Scottish Elections. The SNP surpassed its 2011 constituency vote share and achieved the largest ever popular vote in Scottish history at 1,059,897. It was also the first time that any party in Scotland had received over 1 million votes.

In September 2016 we launched The National Survey, the biggest listening exercise in the the SNP's history.
