With the launch of ParliNet, the new parliamentary intranet, we will be updating links from w4mp to intranet pages to reflect the improved structure of the new site.
ParliNet contains everything you need to stay connected to the parliamentary community. Use it to find information like catering menus, events, contact numbers, and the latest news, and we will be reviewing the contents of w4mp to ensure that it complements what you can find there.
Please note that the old intranet is not being updated and will be switched off on 25 October. Just like us, you should update your favourites and bookmarks to ones on parlinet.parliament.uk before then.
ParliNet, Parliament’s new intranet, will launch tomorrow, Monday 16 October.
ParliNet will be accessible from anywhere, on any device, using a parliamentary login, and will replace the current intranet as a place to go for timely, trusted and relevant information.
On Monday, staff be sent more information to your parliamentary emails about how to get access to the site. There will also be an information stand in the weeks after ParliNet launches, to ask questions or receive advice about using ParliNet, as well as online and in-person demo sessions.
ParliNet and w4mp
We will be migrating existing intranet links to the new site, but this will not be a simple update as the structure and content of the new site is very different from the current one. We will complete the update before the old intranet is turned off at the end of the month.
Please note that links to the old Parliamentary intranet have been removed as of October 2023. Please use search on ParliNet to find relevant current details, if available.
The new Certificate of Employer’s Liability Insurance, which should be displayed in all MPs’ offices, is now available to download here.
The Speaker’s Parliamentary Placement Scheme is a 12-month internship (beginning late September / early October 2023) run in partnership with the Patchwork Foundation and Parliament. Interns will work across rotations in Parliament, including working on a House of Commons team, working with an MP in government and working with an MP in opposition.
They are looking for people who are passionate about politics and looking to pursue a career in the field, but may find it harder to access opportunities, connections or experiences.
Throughout the placement, Patchwork will provide monthly personal development days alongside one-to-one mentoring support.
Applications will close Tuesday 11th April
