House of Commons Work Experience Scheme

Due to the unforeseen impact of Covid-19, the House of Commons has not been able to take on any new students for our Work Experience Scheme 2021.

We may have some updates later this year, so please keep an eye on this page for any further information.

If you have any queries in the meantime then please email or call 0207 219 6011. The team will be able to help with any specific queries regarding the scheme, application process or reasonable adjustments.

Application Process

When applications open, students will be able to apply on the House of Commons careers website.

We encourage students to apply early if they are interested in participating in The Work Experience Scheme. Students will complete an application form outlining their interest in Parliament and those who are successful at this stage will be offered a Work Experience Placement.

We welcome applications from everyone regardless of age, disability, faith, ethnicity, race, gender identity, marital status, sex, sexual identity, caring responsibilities, and socio-economic background.
