Get a unique insight into what we do and how we do it by doing a work experience placement with us.

Every year we offer work experience placements to secondary schools students, students in further or higher education or people wishing to get some experience of a different kind of workplace and people wanting to develop their employability skills. The length of placements varies from one day to a few weeks depending on the type of work experience you require.

If you would like to take up a work experience placement with us we would love to hear from you. Simply complete our work experience enquiry form. We will check the availability of the placement(s) and respond to you as soon as possible.

Take a look at what secondary schools students had to say about the work experience they had with the council:

“I feel much more confident, for when I go into a work place, full time. I feel this experience has really given me an insight into what I would like to do in the future. I will miss being at the council; being at school made me realise how much I enjoyed working at the council”

“What a fantastic placement. Lovely people who made me really welcome. I have learned more then I do in a term at school. The placement was tailored to meet my interests and I had an amazing time!”
