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 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, for example the Gardens team or the Ticket Sales, Guiding or Retail teams at the Shakespeare Houses, 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.

Once applications have been reviewed we will be in touch to let you know if you have been shortlisted. Shortlisted applicants may be invited to attend an informal interview at The Shakespeare Centre before the final students are selected.

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