Learn in a real working environment at the museum

We are offering one week work experience opportunities at the Museum of London. These involve a range of activities and provide a general overview of the workings of a museum. They run for 5 days (Monday-Friday) and are open to young people aged 14-18.

Work experience will be available on the following fixed dates (Please note these have changed at 25 January 2019 to):

  • 24 June - 28 June 2019
  • 1-5 July 2019

Due to the high number of applications for our work experience programme, all students are required to attend our Work Experience Insight Day. For the summer intake our Insight Day is on Friday 3 May 2019. This is to provide students with a greater awareness of the museum prior to applying for a work experience placement. Students will have the opportunity to meet with staff, hear about the departments taking part in the programme and learn more about the career paths of those who will be working with them during their placement. Students are welcome to attend the Work Experience Insight Day even if they are not able to attend one of the Work Experience weeks on offer.

Applications will open 1 March 2019 for the above Work Experience Insight Day where you will be able to apply through our Current Opportunities portal under Youth Engagement to register your interest. Applications for the Work Experience Insight Day will close on 12 April 2019. Please note applications will be assessed on a rolling basis and therefore may close earlier than the date specified.
