Paid Placement in Parliament

A job opportunity sent from The Creative Society: pexels photo 50632

We believe Parliament should be accessible to everyone. We are widening access by offering a 9 month paid placement to people who have the skills, passion and potential to work here but don’t have access to the traditional routes in. 

There are 10 positions available with MPs from different political parties. The Scheme is open to people of any age (no younger than 18), from all walks of life and every nation and region in the UK. In previous years, successful candidates have ranged from school leavers, to those in their mid-50s, and they moved to London from many different parts of the UK.

Successful candidates will spend their time getting to understand parliament by working with an MP in their office from Monday – Thursday. They will spend their Fridays in different departments in the House of Commons to gain an insight into how Parliament functions. 

This is an amazing opportunity. To find out more about the role visit their website here...
