How to apply
Download the work experience bulletin [442kb] [pdf] which details the range of placements that are available across the County. If you would like to apply for a placement you will need to make contact with the young person's recruitment team who will check availability. You will need to provide the placement reference code from the bulletin and the dates that you would like to undertake the placement. Work experience placements are very popular and students frequently contact us to request availability and book placements. To avoid disappointment we recommend you contact us in good time to check the placement is available, we recommend that you contact us at least 8 weeks before you would like the placement to start
