Hi, I’m Paige. I’m a Policy Assistant to the Mayor of Bristol and former Policy Intern, and an internship in the Mayor’s Office helped me to unlock my potential and it can do the same for you!
Applications are open now and offer a unique learning opportunity which will allow you to gain amazing exposure to Bristol’s city leadership, partner organisations and the huge programme of work which is taking place in the city right now. You will learn transferrable skills around time management, stakeholder engagement and communication which will support your next step on the career ladder. Former interns have gone on to secure jobs in a variety of sectors such as the City Office, the Inclusive Growth Network and Channel 4.
We’re a friendly, hard-working team who will support you to explore your personal interests. As a south Bristol resident, my interests were widening participation initiatives and young people and this led to my involvement in some fantastic schemes such as Kickstart, the West of England Black Interns Pilot and the south Bristol Youth Zone.
The Mayor’s Office would really benefit from more diversity and youth voices so if you hold A-Level or equivalent qualifications (which don’t have to be in Politics – I studied English!) and would love the opportunity to support the Mayor in delivering their vision for Bristol, then send us your application today and unlock your potential with an internship in the Mayor’s Office.
