Work Experience

Are you interested in finding out more about the Warwick Arts Centre and the way it works? This is a unique opportunity to work at the Midlands’ largest arts centre and experience the many departments and roles which pull together to create a varied and exciting programme across its five main venues.

We offer two one-week placements each year, one in May/June and one in October/November for students in Year 10 or 11. Sorry, we can’t offer placements outside of these times, including in July as this is during University vacation. Your work experience will offer the opportunity to work in box office, marketing, education, front of house and to see shows from a technical point of view and from the auditorium! The Warwick Arts Centre is not a producing venue so we are therefore not able to offer you the opportunity to work in costume, make-up or set design.

Applications for a work experience placement should be in the form of a letter outlining the courses that you’re studying, your aspirations for the future, your reasons for choosing Warwick Arts Centre and what you hope to gain from your time here.
