Work Experience

The Whitworth and Manchester Museum offer a joint one week Work Experience programme for secondary school students in year 10 and 11.

The Visitor Team is the vibrant connection between our collections and our visitors. During the week students will learn about visitor engagement, customer service, health & safety and gain a little retail experience too, all within two of Manchester's most iconic cultural institutions. 

If you would like to join us for this experience, please complete our short form and someone will be in touch soon: 

  • Our Work Experience programme is now full until October 2018 
  • Please be aware this is a very popular offer and places are limited. 
  • From the start of August 2018 Manchester Museum is scheduled to be partially open due to a capital development project. We’ll still be running Work Experience placements but a larger portion of the week will be spent at The Whitworth than Manchester Museum.
