    Work Experience

    We're always keen to hear from enthusiastic young people interested in getting involved with The Story Museum's work however due to the extremely high demand for work experience places we only offer placements through our strategic partnerships with selected schools. Some schools allow students to complete a week’s intensive volunteering during school holidays in lieu of work experience during specific weeks and we’re happy to support whenever possible.
