Work Experience

Dear Mr BLANK,

Re: Enquiry of work experience

I am a resident in your constituency of BLANK, and I am in my second year at BLANK, where I am studying BLANK. I would like to enquire about any work placements or experience that may be available during with Christmas holidays of 2015 or Easter or summer holidays of 2016.

I have previously had work experience placements in a more business environment, such as BLANK in London, which has enhanced my knowledge of economics and I am now searching for a more political experience. Whilst being at university I have participated in organised political debates over issues such as devolution in the United Kingdom, our involvement in the EU and International Politics.

If there are any opportunities within your offices in BLANK or London to shadow a political figure or gain a deeper understanding of real life politics I would be extremely grateful.

Please find attached my CV for further reference.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Yours sincerely,
