The Internships

Explore the two different internship streams, open for applications, to help build the relationship between faith, politics, and what it means to live out a vocation in public life.

The aim of the 12-month programme is to help form the consciences of the next generation of Catholic lay leaders: people deeply committed to their faith, who have a vocation to public service and a desire to put their faith into practice by working towards the common good.

These internship placements have been chosen in order to emphasise the relationship between faith and politics, and what it means to live out a vocation in public life.

The Opportunity

Two possible internship streams

An internship with Faith in Politics involves working either in the office of a Member or Parliament or in the public affairs office at CAFOD, the overseas aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

There are three places available in Parliament, and one place at CAFOD. Applicants are welcome to apply for both but will only be considered for the positions for which they have applied.

Parliament Stream

Work with a Member of Parliament across a variety of parliamentary issues.

CAFOD Stream

A CAFOD intern works within, and is fully supported by, a small government relations team who are responsible for CAFOD’s parliamentary engagement.

Programme Pillars

There are four key pillars central to the 'Faith in Politics' experience: faith, learning, pilgrimage and community.
