At the Conservative Party, we believe in attracting the top talent across a wide range of specialisms and skills and believe we will be at our best when we reflect all the communities we serve and represent.

The Summer Internship Scheme will offer an exciting opportunity to undertake a paid introductory employment and training experience across multiple departments within the Party over six weeks in the Summer.

In collaboration with the Patchwork Foundation, this scheme will provide exposure to many different areas and aspects within the Party, including digital, press, campaigning, marketing, research and more. The scheme is designed to support young adults who traditionally may not have thought a career in politics was possible by providing the skills, insight, experiences, and pastoral support needed to overcome any barriers.

You will experience a wide range of project work and activities equipping you with the essential skills to work in centre-right politics.

We are looking for dynamic and motivated young adults from underprivileged or non-traditional backgrounds interested in a career in Politics to join our teams and experience what it’s like to work in CCHQ.
