These opportunities are ideal for students currently on an undergraduate degree course who are looking for a sandwich year. However they are also open to graduates or non-students who are looking to gain practical experience.

Applications for placements starting in August 2023 are now closed. No further recruitments are planned for these placements but should any additional roles become available they will be shown here.

Recruitment for placements starting in August 2024 will open during January 2024. General information on our placements is below along with a little insight into what it is like to do a placement at WWT from some of last year’s placements. Please check back on this page in January when more information will be available, along with details on how to apply.
