Parliament launches annual recruitment day

Parliament’s historic Westminster Hall is to host a recruitment fair next week showcasing opportunities in the various communities within Parliament.

A statement, released by Parliament this week, reveals the annual fair, which is open to people of all ages and backgrounds, will give jobseekers an opportunity to discover what it is like to work in the House of Commons, the House of Lords and the Parliamentary Digital Service and to hear from diverse staff across the whole community.

Staff will speak about their roles, journeys and insights, offering advice on how jobseekers can apply, while a series of seminars will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, enabling jobseekers to discover more about how people’s careers have developed since joining Parliament.

There will also be an opportunity to learn about the hundreds of roles available, including hospitality, parliamentary procedure, research, customer service, security, maintenance, visitor services, education, finance, IT and HR.

Attendees will get a chance to meet representatives from Parliament’s Workplace Equality Networks, which represent the LGBTQ+, disabled and other diverse communities.

Tickets to the fair are free and can be booked via the website or by contacting [email protected].
