Work Experience

If you would like to gain valuable experience and learn new skills why not take up a work experience placement with the Trust?

Work experience placements usually last one or two weeks and are available at the Shakespeare Houses or with our various support departments which include Education, Development, Finance, HR, IT, Marketing, Catering and Retail. 

What you do with us during your placement depends on you, your interests and your requirements. You could spend the full placement with one team or a more varied programme covering a range of experiences could be developed for you.

At the start of your placement you will receive an introduction to the Trust, meet the colleagues you will be working with and be shown what to do.  Throughout the week you will be supervised and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask for support/advice.

If you would like to apply for work experience with the Trust please download an application form, complete and return it to the email or postal address provided on the form.

We will try to accommodate as many work experience placements as possible, and we will be in contact with you in due course on receipt of your application form. You may be invited to attend an informal interview before your placement is confirmed.

If you have difficulty downloading or completing the application form, or for more information, please contact the HR Department on 01789 204016 or contact us by email.
