Work Experience

Develop skills, make contacts, learn more about the jobs you'd like to do...

Work experience is a great way to learn new skills and get some experience on your CV. It will help you prove to employers you have what it takes to be a great employee.

Benefits of gaining work experience:

  • You’ll learn from and work alongside experienced people
  • You’ll develop skills, make contacts, and learn more about the kind of jobs you’d like to do
  • You will develop vital skills that are transferrable to a range of roles when you move into work
  • It will look great on your CV improving your chances of getting a job, traineeship or apprenticeship
  • You can ask for a reference for future job applications


These short term opportunities with employers usually last just one or two weeks.
