I couldn’t have imagined it would grow to over 1000+ pages viewed over a million times.
It took three years to understand why I kept doing it…
In 2017 I truly saw my love of British politics and history had shaped every educational and career choice I had ever made.
I realised I’ve been in your shoes at every step
and through Britpolitics I can share my experience and help you with your struggles.
- You see, from 14 years old I did GCSE then A level history.
- I chose an undergraduate and masters degree in politics and international relations.
- I struggled massively with political theory
- I went through and survived nerve-wracking exams
- I slogged the research, writing, and editing of countless essays and two dissertations.
Then, after four great years, I had to find a job with a politics degree with zero relevant experience to match the career path I had in my head.
My C.V, apart from being the world’s worst waitress for a few summers, was lacking any relevant professional writing experience. I deeply regret this.
After a close friend told me to sort my life out, I quit my soulless admin job and had a lucky stumble into the communications industry.
I spent over twelve years learning the hard way how to write effective press releases, speeches and briefing papers for busy politicians and civil servants. I did research, marketing, produced videos, magazine articles and websites. I loved it.

My mistake was not getting relevant experience for when the party had stopped after graduation.
I remember looking at jobs with no experience thinking hmmm ‘how am I going to get experience if no one will take a chance on me.' Sound familiar?
But at the same time I dreamed about a glossy career, wearing a suit, in something to do with what I'd studied for years.
Don't be afraid or waste time like me. You're not too young, too old, too inexperienced, too unpolished. You also don't need any technical skills.
