Work Experience

Do you live and/or go to school in Southwark and does your school have a Work Experience programme?  

If you’re currently trying to find a placement and 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 or two week Work Experience programmes, where you’ll spend time observing, assisting and learning from departments across the organisation including Theatre, Globe Education, Exhibition & Tour, Front of House, Friends & Patrons, 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.

We have up to five places available to students each who live and/or go to school in Southwark.

Applications for 2017 will open soon. 

Voluntary Work Placements

Voluntary Work Placements provide experience and an insight into a career in the Arts.  The nature of work offered through these placements varies between departments.
