The Public Affairs Company provides an opportunity for voluntary, unpaid experience for graduates and under-graduates interested in public affairs. You will have the opportunity to work alongside consultants involved with projects such as parliamentary monitoring, research, planning lobbying campaigns for clients, arranging meetings with politicians and officials for clients, and writing briefings and other material.
This experience has proved invaluable for others who have gone on to join political consultancy firms or gain employment in related areas.
To get the maximum benefit from this, the following would be an advantage:
- A significant interest in and knowledge of political affairs
- At least a basic understanding of the workings of Parliament and Government
- The ability to prepare clear, concise and accurate written material
- Good communication skills.
You would be based at our office in Headingley, Leeds. Reasonable travel and lunch expenses will be paid.
We do not currently have availability for work experience placements. We advertise any available positions through the Work 4 MP website so would recommend using this to check for any upcoming vacancies.
