I offer work experience opportunities to students from Mid Dorset and North Poole. The placement gives young people an insight into local politics and a chance to boost their skills. Students will be able to help with a number of tasks, including:
- Casework, depending on the age and ability of the student.
- Researching issues.
- Taking press-cuttings.
- Writing press releases.
- Accompanying me to a meeting or event in the House or in the constituency.
- Assisting with office duties.
- Answering queries from constituents, either by phone, email or letter.
When I have students in my office for work experience, I ask them to write something about their experience. You can read their contributions in the drop down lists on the left.
Please contact my office to enquire about work experience.
