How do you build a team? There are several different ways of doing it - but in these videos, two women share their approaches. To the left, Preet Kaur Gill, MP shares her process of building a team when she ran for council; she later was elected the first-ever Sikh woman as a British MP. On the right, Claire Miller, Scottish Greens councillor for Edinburgh, talks us through her story of building a political team.

Last, but certainly not least, we have Step #7: Running a campaign.
