Work Experience

Birmingham Museums Trust offers a number of work experience placements in various departments across our nine sites throughout the year. 

Our placements are open to anyone over the age of fifteen who is not currently in employment.

Each placement is two weeks long and is a great chance to gain some experience of the sector, develop your skills and knowledge, as well as getting a general awareness of the working world.

We are currently full for all of our 2014 placements but if you would like to register your interest for a 2015 placement then please email: alex.nicholson-evans@birminghammuseums.org.uk with 'Work Experience' in the subject line. At this stage you do not need to send an application form or CV, simply send us your contact email address so that we can let you know when our placements become available.

We ask that all our potential work experience applicants visit as many of our sites as possible so that they have a better idea of which placement might be best for them and to give them an understanding of the Trust as a whole.
