Work experience

Claire Perry offers work experience opportunities to students from the Devizes Constituency. The placement gives young people an insight into a career in politics and a chance to boost their skills. Work experience placements generally last 2-3 days and are split across the Constituency office in Devizes and, where possible, one day in Westminster.

Placements are limited and therefore priority is given to students living in, or at school, in the Devizes Constituency.

Students will be able to help with a number of tasks:

  • Completing casework
  • Researching 
  • Writing press releases
  • Accompanying the MP to meetings or events 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, please email: Please include a copy of your CV, together with your preferred dates.
