I offer 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:
- Casework, depending on the age and ability of the student
- Researching an issue
- Taking press-cuttings
- Writing press releases
- Accompanying the MP to a meeting or event in the House or in the Constituency
- Assisting with office duties
- Answering queries from constituents, either by 'phone or by email - I don’t allow work experience students access to the phones, emails or actual constituents for a host of data protection and safeguarding reasons. The closest they’ll get is a print out of a screened email with all identifying data removed which protects us, the constituent and the student.
Please contact us to enquire about work experience in my office.
