The W4MP Jobs service
Updated 3 August 2012
Between the general election in May 2010 and the end of July 2012 393 MPs have used the W4MP Jobs page to advertise 1,176 paid jobs and internships located both at Westminster and in constituencies. This is in addition to 9,505 other posts advertised, including paid jobs as well as internships and volunteer roles, with employers, charities, political parties, campaigns, etc.

We began with a couple of dozen ads a month - now it's over 400 every month, and growing.
Yes, it's free for ALL advertisers, not just MPs, Peers etc.
