Work Experience

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.
