This role is an entry level case worker post. Case work is a major part of what a member of parliament does and constituents bring forward issues that they need help and support with. This can be anything from getting the lamp post outside their house fixed to a major immigration inquiry.
This post will work with the senior caseworker who will help to train them on how to undertake casework and they will work together to ensure that all casework is done and constituents are helped.
The job involves meeting with members of the public who are looking for the MP’s help. Sometimes this will be done with the MP, sometimes with other members of the team. This can be face to face, it can also be over the phone and often by email. You will build a relationship with individual constituents to ensure that they get the help they need from the MP’s office.
