Please Help: Hungry to serve my country in a department that makes a difference

Anita Collins made this Freedom of Information request to Department for International Development

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Department for International Development.

Dear Department for International Development,

I would like an opportunity to meet with any one senior in DFID and be given at least a 3 month trial to prove myself worthy. My Undergraduate degree is in Third world Development and my Masters is in International Diplomacy. I have always wanted to work for DFID but people like myself do not necessarily stand a chance even though I know that I will make a positive contribution if I were given the chance.

Please hear me out and give me a chance - Justin Greening

Yours faithfully,

A. Collins
