Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered how to turn your degree into a Parliamentary career, working at the heart of government? POLIS has some wonderful alumni working in a variety of sectors and we have invited some of those alumni back to the University of Leeds to discuss how they used their degree from POLIS to build a career in Parliament.

Confirmed speakers are:

Matthew Robinson - Leeds City Councillor. Matthew was elected to represent the Harewood ward on 6th May 2010. He now sits on the Sustainable Economy and Culture Scrutiny Committee for Leeds City Council and the North East Outer Area Committee, and has been appointed to the Leeds Schools Sports Association and Leeds Sports Federation. Matthew is also a Governor for the Shadwell and Bramham School Federation, serving both primary schools. Matthew completed an MA in International Relations after completing his BA in Politics from the University of York.

Josh Stephens - Deputy Director at CHAMP. CHAMP is an organisation which promotes peace and prosperity in Northern Ireland, and throughout Ireland and the UK. Josh was, prior to joining CHAMP, a Parliamentary Researcher in the House of Commons and a Leeds University PPS Graduate.

Richard Vale - Senior Delivery Manager, Governent Digital Services. Richard works alongside three product teams working to give people inside and outside of government easier access to better quality government data to support the creation and running of even better government services.
