Researcher Extraordinaire

So, now you know what a delegated legislation committee is and what the difference is between a substantive and supplementary Parliamentary Question.

But what are the skills you will need to become the Researcher Extraordinaire that you persuaded your MP you were at interview?

  • Writing a speech
  • Writing a briefing
  • Handling the Media
  • Dealing with Lobbyists

(Yes, you need to have an iron grip on budgets, correspondence, event management, diary management and everything else in your MP’s life- those are discussed further in the Your Office section).
