What is work experience?
Work Experience is usually a short period of unpaid work, designed to provide an insight into the workplace. Placements can also assist with learning basic work skills and deciding what career path you might like to follow.

Work experience is available to anyone from the age of 15. It can take place at any point in the year and placements are usually for 1 week, however we may be able to arrange alternative working times to help support you if the team you will work in can accommodate this.
Work Experience can help you to make the transition from education into working life, help you re-enter the workplace after a break and/or give you the opportunity to retrain, but in all cases it will help you gain genuine hands on experience, be part of a team and help to deliver council services.
