Work experience

I am sometimes able to offer week-long work experience opportunities in Westminster to students frrom Bournemouth East. Students need to be at least sixth form level (ideally pre- or post- University) with a demonstrable interest in politics and current affairs. 

The placement gives young people an insight in to local politics and a chance to boost their skills. Students will be able to help with a number of tasks:

  • Casework, depending on the age and ability of the student
  • Researching an issue
  • Accompanying the MP to a meeting or event in the House or in the Constituency
  • Assisting with office duties
  • Answering queries from constituents, either by phone or by email


To enquire about work experience in my office, please send a CV and short cover letter stating why you would like to undertake a placement. Please make sure to include your full address and date of birth in your CV. This can either be emailed to me at or posted to me by writing to: Tobias Ellwood MP, House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA.
