The new chief of staff for the Nova Scotia NDP says the party’s caucus office will be looking to fill three jobs in the near future.

Jim Morton, a former NDP MLA who represented the Kings North riding from 2009 to 2013, would not confirm whether layoffs at the office created the vacant positions.

He said jobs will be posted for positions in communications, research and outreach in the coming days, and the main objective is to support new party leader Gary Burrill.

Burrill was chosen to lead the party at a convention in February.
