Work experience

Start your career journey

We see our work experience programme as the potential start of your career journey.

This is a fantastic opportunity to introduce you to the reality of working life. The aim is to provide learning and insight, by exposing you to a variety of tasks and experiences within our industry. 

How do I apply for work experience?

Applications for 2018 are now closed. We will shortly be publishing the application window dates here so please watch this space.

But here is some information to be getting on with.

As much as we’d like to, high demand means we’re unable to offer everyone a place. If after you have completed the application you’re successful, we’ll contact you to confirm the details. If we don’t have a place for you this time round, do keep trying.

To be eligible for a place:

  • You must be a year 9 – 11 student within our local area, and have available transport to and from Stanlow
  • You must not have carried out a work experience placement with us, in any department, within the last six months
  • You must have a strong interest in working within our industry and the particular field in which you have requested a placement
  • You must submit within your application an up to date CV
  • You must have confirmed parental and school/college approval to attend your placement

If my application was successful what would my placement look like?

We have a number of different work areas and departments at Stanlow and placements would vary across these.  However, we have outlined below the basics of our placements:

  • A one-week placement within one of our areas or departments at the Stanlow site
  • Exposure to a variety of different work tasks within your chosen area
  • Guided and coached at all times by an experienced team member
  • Encouraged to complete a student log which will give you the opportunity to reflect on your placement day

Who knows? Maybe your future is part of our future too.
