Looking for hands-on museum work experience? We are offering two week-long placements to students in Years 10-13 interested in gaining an insight into how Manchester Museum works.

The team at Manchester Museum has developed two work experience packages that will run Monday 7th- Friday 11th July and Monday 14th- Friday 18th July.

As a work experience student you will experience the working life of the museum through a programme of organised activities and tasks. You will meet the staff and gain practical work experience both behind the scenes and out in the gallery spaces. You will get to see first-hand how the museum’s collections are looked after and displayed as well as how we welcome and work with our visitors. One of our work experience students who took part in last summer’s placement said: ‘In this past week I feel I have learned a lot about the way a museum operates and the different types of work involved in running a museum.’ See the blog post that two of our work experience students wrote about their experiences last summer. 

For more information on how to apply for this summer’s placement see Work experience application form 

If you have any other queries about our work experience placements, please contact amy.jones-2@manchester.ac.uk

The deadline for applications is Friday 21st February and we will contact all applicants by 14th March to let you know if your entry was successful. We look forward to hearing from you!
