Work Experience

Are you interested in a career in the museum and heritage sector? Museums Worcestershire offers 4 unpaid work experience placements a year to Year 12 and Year 13 students to give a chance to understand the different roles within the industry. The placement lasts one week and offers students a range of experiences across our different departments including Learning & Engagement, Marketing and Communications, Visitor Services, and Collections and Exhibitions. Please read below carefully to make sure you are following the right route in your enquiry.

We offer 2 placements at our Hartlebury Castle venue during the Summer term (typically June or July) and during the Autumn term (typically October or November). We also offer 2 placements at our city venues, placing you at the Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum and The Commandery during your week.

The museum and heritage industry is a competitive one which means we receive a high volume of applications and are unfortunately unable to provide placements for everyone. Applications will be assessed on their merit and only applications made using the Work Experience Application Form will be considered. Please ensure you name which location you wish to have your work experience at, our Hartlebury venue or Worcester venues.
