Work experience

Get a taster of working at Winchester City Council! 

We are keen to invite applications for work experience from young people at school and colleges in Winchester district. Applications from university students from Winchester district requiring short-term work experience to complete their courses are also welcome. We cannot offer year-long paid internships. In all cases, applicants from inside the district will be considered before those from outside the district. 

We give priority to applicants for work experience in hard-to-recruit areas such as special maintenance, chef work, legal, building control, and parking.

Our work experience programmes are accredited by Industrial Cadets, a national scheme hallmarking quality work experience placements.

How to apply

  1. All applicants for work experience should fill our online Work Experience Application Form as a first step.
  2. Before starting this form please print out and sign the Individual, Parent and Teacher Agreement form. You must sign this document. If you are under 18 you must ask a Parent/Guardian to also sign it. There is opportunity later in this form to upload the signed and scanned/photographed copy. Alternatively you can return the paper copy in the post to Human Resources, Winchester City Council, Colebrook Street, Winchester, Hampshire, SO23 9LJ
