We are introducing a Virtual Work Experience Programme as an alternative option to the more traditional, work-based, placements.

Work experience offers you the chance to get real insight into the world of work and begin to explore different career pathways, which may interest you. Through our programme, you will learn more about us as an organisation, what we do and perhaps where you could see yourself.  

The virtual nature of the programme removes the necessity to travel, as well as greater flexibility to complete the programme around other commitments.

Whilst the Virtual Work Experience Programme is not restricted or limited in terms of age, we anticipate it would be most beneficial to people who are in secondary or further education with limited work experience and looking to enhance their skills.

The programme offers you the opportunity to learn about North Yorkshire County Council services and career opportunities. You will also complete key activities and tasks to help develop your core skills, and participate in employability sessions, focusing on CVs, applications and interview top tips.

Programme dates

The programme will run over a three week period and delivered wholly online. There will be interactive online sessions, as well as recorded information and videos.

Whilst live sessions will run at scheduled intervals within the three weeks, the rest of the programme can be accessed and completed at your own convenience, allowing flexibility around other commitments. As a minimum time commitment for the sessions and activities, we would estimate approximately 20 hours in total.

The next programme will take place from 8 to 26 November 2021. Please register your interest in this programme by Sunday 31 October.
