Work experience with Solihull libraries

Work experience

Placements may be available, but please note that these are likely to be extremely limited in availability and location.

Solihull Libraries offer work experience placements to pupils in Years 11, 12 and 13.

Placements last for one week but as they are limited it is essential to apply well in advance.

The placements offer an insight into the daily duties of a modern library and are an excellent way in which to experience face to face customer service.

A knowledge of books and IT Skills is of benefit. A certificate will be awarded on completion of your work experience placement.

Duke of Edinburgh

There are also some Duke of Edinburgh placements available at selected community libraries. You must be aged 14 or over to apply.

If you are interested please email stating the dates you are available for work experience and which library you would prefer. Alternatively please mention if you are flexible with regard to working at any Library within Solihull (excluding Hampton in Arden and Meriden).

Our Employment Resources Team will forward a work experience application form to you, which on completion will be considered by the relevant library.
