School Work Experience

Do you attend a Secondary School in Tower Hamlets?

Would you like to have your school work experience in Idea Stores?

What’s in it for you?

Idea Stores are very keen to work closely with students who study in Tower Hamlets.  If you have an interest in books and working with the public then we could be the right choice for you.  During your time with us, you will have the opportunity to experience work Idea Store Coordinators participate in.  Always shadowing a member of staff and being part of a frontline team, you will get a true feel of working for a public service and learn lots of skills along the way.

What’s in it for us?

We want to work with young people in Tower Hamlets, but to be eligible for a placement, we have a checklist. We want students that are
•    Keen and enthusiastic
•    Punctual and reliable
•    Have good literacy and numeracy skills (you will need this for shelving books)
•    Have basic IT skills (you will need this for serving customers)
•    A willingness to participate in activities
•    Can commit to a full time one week or two week placement, Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm

If you have all this, then we want to hear from you!

Please note we only accept applications via our website.

Students will only be accepted if successful in a short informal interview.

We do not accept School Work Experience placements during the Summer Holidays and placements are subject to availability during half-term.
