Work experience can be an incredible help in deciding what to study and choosing your future career. It can also be a great way to meet people, get out of your comfort zone, experience new things and learn!

Why not spend a week with us and see if working with animals is something you want to do in the future? 

Please be aware that work experience at Vauxhall City Farm isn't just about petting rabbits and feeding goats (though we do try and give you opportunity to do all this as well). Working on a farm, even one as small as ours, is hard work and involves a lot of cleaning and sweeping. It's important to be aware of this, before you apply for a placement with us. 

We have hundreds of young people complete placements with us across the year and can get booked up very early, especially during designated school 'Work Experience Weeks' so please do make sure that you get in touch several months in advance, to ask for a placement. 

"My son has been working at the farm on Sundays as part of the Duke of Edinburgh bronze medal award scheme.  He has loved the work and the experience has been brilliant for him.  His Dad and I can see how much his confidence has increased since working at the farm and how much he has learnt and how much he has enjoyed the experience. Once again many thanks to you and to all the team for making this volunteering experience such a brilliant one for him." -- C.A. Email feedback

We require all work experience students to have an up to date tetanus vaccination and will not be able to process your application without this, so please check with your GP for the date of your last vaccination before you fill in an application form. 

Please fill in the appropriate form and email or post it back to us. Please be aware that placements are not secured until we have emailed you back, to confirm that your placement is secured. Parts of the form that have not been filled in will slow down the process and may mean you miss out on a placement.
