Creating homes and places where people want to live

Work experience

A work experience placement is a voluntary placement in a working environment, usually lasting between one and two weeks. It’s a fantastic opportunity to see what the world of work is like, and to gain experience that will help you up onto the career ladder.

It will provide you with some basic employment skills, such as timekeeping, communication, team-work and planning.

Who can apply?

Work experience is a great opportunity for anyone who is looking to change career, move on into employment or for students considering their next steps after education. As long as you live within the Nottingham City boundary and are between the ages of 14 and 65 you can apply.
