    Work Experience

    We are happy to offer short-term work experience placements for students at secondary school, college or university.

    Our placements usually take place over one or two weeks and we aim to give students an overview of working at a busy heritage site. Whenever possible, we give students experience across Gunnersbury’s three major areas:
    • Learning – assisting with events and activities for a range of different audiences
    • Horticulture – supporting the Head Gardener with park-based tasks
    • Curatorial – working with the curator to look after the collections

    Longer placements for college and university students working within a specific department can sometimes be accommodated.

    Please email gunnersburylearning@ealing.gov.uk if you are interested in a work experience placement.
