A letter from andrea
Thank you for your interest in applying for a week's work experience in my office.
This is a great opportunity for those who have a particular interest in politics and who wish to gain experience within their local MP's office. It is open to students aged 16 or above who live or go to school in my South Northamptonshire constituency.
As this is a formal work experience opportunity, applicants who are still at school (16-18) should ask their Head of Year, or appropriate teacher, to contact me with dates during term-time to request a placement. If you are studying at university, please contact me directly although be aware that you will need to be agree the time away with your Personal Tutor or appropriate lecturers.
I do not routinely accept work experience placements during the holidays as the Commons is likely to be on Recess, and the staff cover in my office is reduced due to annual leave.
All applicants will need to provide a CV and short cover letter detailing your interest via email@example.com.
Successful candidates will work in my Towcester office on Tuesday and Wednesday, and in my Westminster office on Thursday and Friday.
I look forward to hearing from you.
With best wishes,
