Scottish Parliamentary Internships For Disabled Graduates

Payment: UK Living Wage of £7.65 per hour

Accountable to: Host MSP or, in their absence, a member of their office team

Contract: 35 hours per week for 13 weeks (3 months) or part-time over a longer period (to be discussed, flexibility available)

Inclusion Scotland is now advertising for several internships as part of a very exciting pilot project placing a total of 7 disabled graduate interns with Members of the Scottish Parliament. Interns will work in the office of a host MSP (or pair of MSPs) and carry out a range of administrative tasks. They will have opportunities to experience different areas of parliamentary business and carry out a project as agreed with the host MSP(s).

We are looking for disabled people (as defined by the Equality Act, including Deaf and other sensory impaired people) of any age, qualified to HND level or above, who wish to increase their employability in areas relevant to politics and policy-making. You will be passionately interested in politics and current affairs, well organised and have good interpersonal and communication skills. You will be keen to learn and keen to share your learning with others.
