Work experience

When Julian was an MP, he was happy to offer work experience opportunities for students from the constituency. The placement gives young people an insight into local politics and a chance to boost their skills. Students in the past have helped with a number of tasks:

  • Casework, depending on the age and ability of the student
  • Researching an issue and preparing a briefing
  • 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, letter, or by email

During the General Election campaign, there will be opportunities to help with the local campaign. Please contact canterbury@tory.org if you would like to find out anymore.
