Catholic Parliamentary Internships

Catholic Parliamentary Internships

uk_parliamentNow in its seventh year, this scheme will provide seven recently graduated Catholics with an intensive experience of political and social action in a spiritual context.

Three interns will be placed with Christian MPs and there are two further public affairs internships – at Archbishops House, Westminster and the Catholic Education Service.

We will also be recruiting two further interns for work with Christian MEPs in Brussels in a new parallel scheme to be run by the office of the European Catholic Bishops’ Conferences based in Brussels (COMECE).

London-based interns join part-time MA students for one evening a week during the autumn and spring terms at Heythrop College, University of London for modules on Catholic Social Teaching and Foundations of Christian Ethics. (Equivalent studies for Brussels based interns).

Interns are selected on the basis of ability and potential to gain most benefit from this unique experience. Financial support is provided which will fund accommodation, living and travel costs for the duration of the internship.

Candidates for Brussels internships will be required to demonstrate good working knowledge of French.

All internships will run from September 2010 – July 2011.

All applicants must be UK citizens.
Closing date for applications: 26 February 2010
