Applications are now open for Ymlaen - a new paid internship at the Senedd Commission for graduates from a Black, Asian or Ethnic Minority background.

Working in partnership with Windsor Fellowship, the Senedd is offering four places on the 12-month training programme. This includes positions in communications, public engagement, strategic transformation and committee services.

The successful interns will train at the heart of Welsh politics, developing skills and knowledge in navigating and assisting a busy and exciting workplace where Wales’ laws are made.

Manon Antoniazzi, Chief Executive and Clerk of the Senedd said:

“We believe the workforce is stronger when it better reflects Wales’ modern and diverse communities.

“This is an exciting opportunity for graduates to develop their skills and understanding in a high-profile and fast-paced environment at the heart of Welsh democracy.

“I’d encourage anyone interested to get in touch to find out more and apply. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Senedd!”

Joyce Watson MS, Senedd Commissioner with responsibility for Equalities, added:

“This internship programme is a great addition to the ongoing work of the Senedd Commission to ensure our workforce reflects the diversity of Wales.

“The programme will offer mentoring, coaching and guidance from experienced Senedd employees.

“It will also provide exciting opportunities for skills building and career development, with invaluable exposure to activities to help prepare for their future careers.”

The aim at the end of the 12-month programme is for the interns to have the skills, experience and ability needed to continue their careers either in the Senedd Commission or elsewhere.
