It was great to have Scarlett Sykes working with us this week for her work experience.
As I've mentioned before, I'm passionate about engaging young people in politics, so I was really happy to see Scarlett so keen to pursue a role in politics and get some experience in a busy constituency office.
Talking about her placement, Scarlett said "Ben has inspired me to be more active in local politics and hopefully pursue it further on in the future. I’ve really enjoyed working in the office and meeting new people in Mansfield’s local council and government. Ben and I are working jointly on a number of projects, which will hopefully benefit the young people in Mansfield".
Thanks Scarlett for spending the week with us! I look forward to working alongside you for some of your upcoming projects!
