Working in Michael Tomlinson’s constituency office has allowed me to gain valuable insight about the day to day work a local MP and their team does.
We were able to write articles for Michael’s website, understand how Michael can effectively affect change in his constituency by encouraging his constituents to share their thoughts through surveys we posted, and saw how an MP supports their constituents, and at times intercede on their behalf, on a variety of issues.
I particularly enjoyed attending a surgery that the team held in the local area. It was great to see first-hand how local representatives affect practical change in their community.
I have really enjoyed this experience and getting to know how Michael’s constituency office operates has been very eye-opening and rewarding.
