Careers in Politics

The History and Politics welcomed former Westminster Insiders Declan and Helen McHugh on Wednesday afternoon to give a talk to our Politics students. The session covered potential careers that studying Politics can lead to, as well as an insight into voting behaviour, predictions for the next General Election and the inner workings/tensions within the Labour Party. Helen and Dec provided a fascinating insight into the world of Westminster having worked for former Foreign & Home Secretary Jack Straw, and former leader of the Labour Party, now Lord, Neil Kinnock. The students were captivated by their insights and asked a range of thoughtful questions throughout the session. The positive impact was evident when several students stayed well after the session to ask questions on an individual basis and seek guidance on possible career paths.
