Labour leader David Cunliffe's chief of staff has quit after just four months in the job.

Wendy Brandon, previously the general counsel at Auckland Council, took up the position on October 1, but has been on sick leave since Christmas.

Labour said Karl Beckett was acting chief of staff and the party was seeking a replacement.
