The Working for an MP website is a resource for anyone working for a British Member of Parliament or with an interest in how Parliament works. You can read about the site’s history, or get in touch with suggestions or feedback.
Whether you’ve been in the job for more elections than you can recall, or are new to working for an MP, welcome – this site is here for you. A good starting point is our collection of guides and information.
If you prefer a more traditional layout for the site, this might please you.
