Work Experience

The Wardrobe can provide opportunities for young people in full time education to gain an insight into the world of work and, more specifically, costume and theatre industries. We offer a limited number of work placements each year and aim to give students the best experience we can while they are with us.

The tasks undertaken on a placement will vary depending on what you are looking to get out of the placement, what is happening in the Wardrobe while you are here and your specific skills, abilities and interests but can range from costume repairs and maintenance to assisting with client appointments or helping us at events.

We generally work with students for one to two weeks, depending on the school’s specifications. For those in higher or further education we can offer placements of a more flexible length and structure according to individual requirements but usually recommend 4-12 weeks to allow both us and you to get the best out of your time.

Please be aware that we often receive high volumes of applications at once. For this reason, all applications within a calendar month will be reviewed at the end of the month. Please bear with us!
