Work experience placements are a great way to build on your skills and gain an insight into the working world. Our work experience offering is an opportunity for you to get a better understanding of what we do and to see if a career in accountancy is for you. 

We offer unpaid work experience opportunities for those over school leaving age that are local to our offices and do not have an existing relationship with Thomas Westcott, however all applications are considered. Our work experience ranges from a minimum of a week to a maximum of three weeks, with a number of our existing team joining us in permanent employment having completing this offering at an earlier stage in their career.

How to Apply?

The application process is very similar to what our job applicants go through as this allows you to get vital recruitment experience. 

If you are interested in a work experience placement, please follow this link where you can upload your CV and a covering letter which needs to include the following information:

Which office(s) and department(s) you would like to be considered for;

When (dates) and for how long (from one to three weeks) you would like the experience;

What you wish to get from the experience and your long-term career aspirations; 

Why you feel you would be suitable for a work experience opportunity with us.

Due to the volume of work experience requests, we regrettably are not able to accommodate or reply to every application. We will however normally contact you usually within 4 weeks of the date of your work experience application if we are to progress you further to an interview and test stage.

I love my job and everyone is really great to work with, there is also scope to develop further and they are hugely flexible which makes me want to stay for as long as possible close quote
