Work experience

As a multi-genre arts centre with a small staff team supported by volunteers, The Witham offers exciting opportunities for work experience. If you’re interested in the arts, administration, marketing, finance, retail, catering and customer service, please get in touch. We would like to explore the opportunities with you.

We welcomed a third year Technical and Production Management student Leonie Hertig for a two week placement in April 2019. You can read about Leonie’s experiences.

Alternatively, you might be thinking about getting back into work after a period of time doing something else eg bringing up a family or looking after elderly relatives. Perhaps you’d like to start re-building your CV – and your confidence – in a warm and friendly environment like ours? Take Raymond Smailes for example. Raymond was thinking about making a career change from hairdressing into catering, so – given his existing customer service skills – he joined our café bar team to gain unpaid work experience so that he could re-shape his CV. He now works for us part time in the café bar.

If you are interested in getting into the arts or developing your skills,  read this great blog by Arts writer Ruth Millington and please do contact us by emailing us at [email protected].
