Work Experience 


Our work experience programme is targeted at young people aged 14 - 18 who live or go to school in the London borough of Southwark and is open all year round.

If you’re interested in working in the Arts, Education or Tourism industries once you finish your studies, perhaps Shakespeare’s Globe is for you?

We offer one week Work Experience programmes, where you’ll spend time observing, assisting and learning from departments across the organisation including Theatre, Education, Exhibition & Tour, Front of House, and Visitor Experience.

Our aim is to give Work Experience students an insight into the working world, and showcase the many different career paths available to those interested in the creative industries.  All participants will receive a written reference at the end of their placement.

To apply for this opportunity please send in a covering letter explaining why you want to spend a week with us and with details of the dates of the work experience week you would like to workexperience@shakespearesglobe.com. We will be inviting candidates to interviews as part of the application process. 

Work Placements


We also want to support students studying courses at further education colleges and higher education institutions that relate to the arts/theatre. Our work placements aim to provide relevant experience to students who need professional experience as part of their course of study/for whom this experience relates directly to their course of study.
