Work Experience

Every year, Richard Harrington MP and Watford Conservatives run a Work Experience Programme.

If you or anyone you know would like to sign up for a unique opportunity to gain a real insight into politics and campaigning please don’t hesitate to get in touch! 

Activities during the week will include:

  • Working in teams on a variety of campaigning and political challenges
  • Gaining real understanding of local and national politics
  • Winning great prizes for individuals and teams
  • Gaining useful skills and experience in writing, design and data management

The programme is open to students over the age of 16, regardless of their political views and no previous experience is needed.

If you are interested in signing up for the programme or would like to know the dates for the 2019 programme, please email

 Weekly Work Experience

Richard Harrington MP offers after-school and weekend work experience, which can range from 1 week to 2 months. These ongoing work placements are designed to fit around the students’ academic schedule, offering more flexibility than the annual summer programme.
