About this course

This placement is a great opportunity to see what the day-to-day life of politics - at a local and national level - is all about. Wera Hobhouse, Member of Parliament for Bath, and his team offer the successful applicant ‘real life’ exposure to a busy working political environment. Your duties may involve responding to constituents’ problems and questions, working on the website and with social media, leafleting and doorstep campaigning or researching and working on projects for Wera. There may also be the opportunity to spend a day ‘shadowing’ Wera’s activities at Westminster. This placement is likely to appeal to Politics majors, as well as those from other academic areas who have a genuine interest in the mechanics of local and national government.
