Recently, Fraser Campbell joined the team at the Paisley’s Parliamentary Office for his work experience. Fraser, a fourth year pupil at Johnstone High School, has always had an interest in politics and current affairs. This made the Paisley office the perfect place to spend his work experience.
Speaking of his time with his with the team based on Johnston Street Fraser said, “I was looking forward to this work placement for weeks! I have always had an interest in politics so I was delighted to have the chance to work with George and the rest of the office here. The team of George, Matthew, Dave, Tom and Cathy were all really friendly and helpful. They made sure I was confident in what I was doing at all times”
“On the Wednesday I was given the opportunity to visit the Scottish Parliament for the first time. Once we got to the Parliament, I had the chance to meet Stacey, George’s wife who is really kind and friendly. Matthew gave me a fantastic tour of the building and I got the chance to have lunch amongst all the MSP’s! The icing on the cake was the chance to view a debate on fracking. This was very intriguing. I finished off the week by accompanying George to a radio interview. Unexpectedly, I ended up speaking on the radio myself. All in all it’s been a fantastic week.”
Speaking of this experience George said, “It was brilliant to have Fraser in the office with us this week. He was helpful and polite and showed a good understanding of politics and the job he was doing, I hope he can carry what he has learned into the future. Fraser has been a pleasure to work with and I wish him all the best for the future.”
