April 19, 2012
MP Julian Huppert has launched a search for a paid intern to join his team at his Cambridge constituency office.
The new recruit will work up to 30 hours a week on casework and will be paid the national minimum wage.
Responsibilities will include drafting responses to constituents’ enquiries, conducting research, attending meetings and surgeries and answering the phone.
The ideal candidate will have a good understanding of the political system and a good grasp of the issues affecting Cambridge residents.
Full training will be provided and the internship is offered for a period of three months.
Julian said: “I am delighted to be able to offer this paid internship. This is an excellent opportunity for someone to get first-hand experience of constituency casework and be at the centre of issues that are important to the people of our city.
“It is also a chance for someone to take the first step on a career in politics while learning every aspect of constituency work which is one of the most important elements of an MP’s role.”
Applications close on Wednesday, May 9 at 5pm with interviews taking place on May 14 in Cambridge. Ideally, the internship will begin on Monday, May 21.
