We provide work experience placements throughout a variety of Departments including Animal Care, Retail, Food and Beverages and Learning to name a few!
These placements are designed to give you an idea of what it is like to work in that particular role. They do not include formal training and there will be limited areas which you will be permitted to help out in, but they are a fantastic way to have a glimpse into a particular job.
Due to the amount of applications for Work Experience we may sometimes be fully booked up to 12 months in advance for some roles, therefore we suggest you apply as soon as possible once you know the dates you are looking for.
Anyone who is of compulsory school age, or is studying a UK based further or higher education course can apply for a Work Experience placement, although age restrictions may apply to certain roles. Due to the high volume of applications, applicants studying subjects most closely related to the work experience role will be prioritised.
To give you as much experience as possible, all placements must be applied for online in the same way as our job vacancies. Short listed applicants will be invited in for an interview to discuss what they are looking for from their placement. Due to the amount of applicants we can not guarentee an interview or placement for everyone and will prioritise the individuals who will benefit the most out of the placement, so make sure you tell us why we should pick you when filling in your application form!
