While we are currently exploring how we might offer work experience opportunities in the future, at present we don’t have the capacity to offer formal work experience placements at Shoreditch Town Hall unfortunately. Please do regularly check this section of the website for developments in this area though, as once we’ve sorted out a plan we want you to be the first to hear about it!

If you’re looking for the odd half or full day of shadowing in a certain area of the organisation then this is something we can potentially explore. Please do e-mail info@shoreditchtownhall.com or call 020 7739 6176, clearly outlining what you’re looking for, and one of us will get back to you.
