Job Title: House of Commons BAME Graduate Internship Programme
Working For: House of Commons
House of Commons BAME Graduate Internship Programme: Three 12-month paid internships starting November 2018.
The Programme is designed to equip participants with the skills and knowledge necessary to secure full-time graduate level positions in Parliament on completion of the Programme. You’ll be performing public administrative duties that require a broad spectrum of skills and knowledge and above all passion for public service and government.
While you may feel that you do not have direct experience of the types of work described in the job descriptions, your particular experiences may be highly relevant if they have given you the capacity to develop the required skills. If appointed, you will be supported in developing specific skills and knowledge that are required for these roles. You are not expected to know everything about the work of Parliament or know how to perform unfamiliar tasks without some training, support, and supervision in the early stages.
There are three, 12-month, paid internships on offer for 2017/2018 Graduates and Masters Graduates. Two will be based in the Chamber and Committees Team (CCT), supporting the work of Select Committee inquiries. These roles will require well-developed research and report writing skills as well as the ability to learn and adapt to procedures. The other role will be based in the Members’ Hub which supports MPs by providing corporate services (e.g. HR, facilities, transport, expenses etc). This role requires someone with an interest in public administration, HR, Change Management or Project Management.

Closing Date: 13 July 2018
Start Date: 1st November
