Our retail department is also able to offer work experience and work placements.
Work experience or a placement may be the first time you visit a workplace and learn about employer expectations and the world of work. It will also provide you with crucial knowledge, skills and personal attributes that employers look for.
Work experience will give you:
An understanding of the work environment and what employers expect of their workers
An opportunity to explore possible career options
Increased self-understanding, independence and self-confidence
The chance to 'try out' a workplace.
Employers are looking for more than just technical skills and knowledge. They particularly value skills such as communication, team-working and problem solving. Job applicants who can demonstrate that they have developed these skills will have a real advantage and work experience or a work placement with St Oswald’s can help you achieve this.
