We recognise the importance of work experience and the benefits that it provides to the student. It helps gain exposure in a chosen field under the supervision of a council officer. 

Placements may be in the following areas:  

  • Corporate Services
  • Regulatory Services  
  • Planning and Development  
  • Environmental Health  
  • Parks and Gardens  
  • Children’s services  
  • Libraries
