Work experience

I am able to offer short unpaid work experience opportunities to students from the constituency. The placement gives young people an insight in to local politics and a chance to boost their skills. Students will be able to help with a number of tasks:

  • Researching a specific political issue
  • Taking press-cuttings
  • Writing press releases
  • Accompanying me to a meeting or event in the House or in the Constituency
  • Assisting with office duties

To enquire about work experience opportunities plesae email me with a copy of your CV and a note on why you would like to undertake work experience in Parliament. Please note that I can only offer a limited number of placements each year and some popular weeks in the school year get allocated early on. Please contact my office as soon as you know you would a placement so that we can do our best to assist. 

Please note that anyone undertaking a placement will have to go through security checks in advance of their placement.
