Work experience
The Sick Children's Trust often provides work experience opportunities for individuals looking to gain experience in the charity sector, perhaps after study or a change in career. We host placement students from anything from one week to several months, and provide hands-on experience across different charity functions. For example, we have previously partnered with universities to host students on funded placements during their summer breaks. 

All our opportunities are bespoke and developed in discussion with the university, college or individual. We do not pay placement or work experience students, but we do contribute to travel and lunch expenses. For more information, please email info@sickchildrenstrust.org.  

My experience

Caroline Land volunteered with our Special Events team for three months: “Working for The Sick Children's Trust was such a great experience. I'm keen to carve a career in events so this voluntary role gave me a great insight into the process of event planning from start to finish. 

“I worked on the charity's Supper Club event and was fully involved in its development - meeting with the venue, ironing out details, organising schedules and seeing everything come together. Being present on the night of the Supper Club was an honour and it was wonderful to see first-hand how my hard work had helped the charity host such a successful fundraising event.

“The team in head office were very welcoming and made my time at The Sick Children's Trust really enjoyable. Volunteering at the charity helped to broaden my experience within the events arena and I am proud that my work in the Special Events team will go some way towards supporting many more families with seriously ill children.”
