Work Experience and Work Placements

Are you looking to experience working in a museum? Or hoping to get some behind the scenes knowledge? Or maybe you just want to find out about the working world.

Birmingham Museum’s Trust is the largest independent charitable trust of museums in the UK and we offer a range of opportunities for work experience and work placements.

Work Experience

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

Our work experience programme is 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.

Our work experience programme for 2017 has now been filled and we received almost 200 applications. If you are keen to complete work experience with us in 2018 why not sign up to our work experience interest list? Just send an email to: workexperience@birminghammuseums.org.uk  

Work Placements

Birmingham Museums Trust wants to support where possible work placements which connect to an individuals’ studies. 

We offer work placements to students linked to an educational organisation or to students with external funding for a placement. These placements are usually between 3 and 6 months, or as requested by the education or funding body. 

We receive a large number of enquires for work placements so are unable to accommodate all requests. If you are interested in completing a work placement with us please send an email to: WorkPlacements@birminghammuseums.org.uk
