EARLY-MORNING milking, bee keeping and serving at a lunch club are just a few of a number of work placements a local MP will be taking up this summer.
Wells MP Tessa Munt will spend part of her summer recess from parliament engaging in work experience with various companies, including a cider maker, vet, and baker.
Ms Munt said the placements would highlight the challenges each business faces, and the benefits of undertaking work experience.
She said: “I know from personal experience that a little work experience can help young people decide whether they’re suited to particular sorts of work. Voluntary experience can often help - an employer will see that someone has tried to gain experience, which can make their application stand out.
“Rolling my sleeves up for these local businesses will offer me a glimpse of what happens on any day in our local firms and clubs. I’ll gain a better understanding of how they operate, the challenges they face and at the same time, can promote what they’re doing.”
