Work Experience

The Hunt Museum occasionally welcomes Transition Year and FE College work placement students.

In order to be considered for a work placement, we need to receive a CV along with two letters of reference. One of these should be a Transition Year teacher or academic supervisor, and the second should be from an employer if you have ever had a paid or unpaid job. Otherwise your second letter of reference could be from any professional person who knows you well, but who is not related to you. Applications will not be considered until all materials (CV and two letters of reference) have been received.

If you are interested in proceeding with an application for a work placement at The Hunt, please email these materials to with “SURNAME – WORK EXPERIENCE” in the subject line. In your email you should explain why you are interested in a work placement at the Hunt Museum.

Work experience placement requests are dealt with quarterly and on a first-come, first-served basis. As there are only a limited number of placements we can offer in any given period, please ensure you apply early (at least 2-4 months in advance of your preferred dates) in order to maximise your chances of doing your placement with us.
