Have you thought of applying for the Catholic Parliamentary & Public Policy Internships?

Young Catholics making a difference in the public square

Are you interested in politics? Are you considering a career where you can put your faith into action? You should consider applying for the Catholic Parliamentary and Public Policy Internships!

Now in its eighth 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 Archbishop's House, Westminster and a joint internship with CAFOD and CARITAS Social Action Network .

An intern will also be recruited to work with Christian MEPs in Brussels in a 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 the 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.
