Tommy Sheppard

MP for Edinburgh East

Paid Internship Opportunity

APPLICATIONS ARE INVITED FOR THE POST OF PAID INTERN (PART-TIME, FIXED-TERM)
 
LOCATION: Constituency offices in Portobello and Craigmillar
 
I am seeking an intern for my constituency office. This will give someone the opportunity to learn how a constituency office works to support the MP and constituents. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to gain general administrative skills and be involved in the daily operation of a constituency office.
 
The living wage will be paid for all hours worked (approximately 10 hours per week) and I can be flexible in relation to days/hours worked to fit round any existing study/work commitments. The role will be for a fixed term of 3 - 6 months.
 
An interest in politics will help but no previous experience is necessary. Applicants should show a willingness to learn and enthusiasm to try new things. I hope that the successful candidate can contribute towards the support currently provided by my constituency office team. In return the intern will benefit from gaining knowledge, experience and confidence during their employment.
 
Your CV and covering letter should be sent to my Chief of Staff, Roz Currie, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and should be submitted by noon on Friday 29th September. Interviews will be held on Friday 6th October although an alternative date can be arranged if required.
 
Please share with anyone who might be interested.

I've also written to the Minister asking for the UK Government to toughen up licensing laws.

While hundreds of amendments were tabled, only a few are selected for a vote each day. There will be eight days of debate in total, three of which took place in November. O...
