Work experience

Work experience is a fantastic way to gain insight into a particular career and a chance to see what a job is really like. It may confirm your career choice or open your eyes to other options that you hadn't considered. It can also be a valuable way of getting some confidence and experience of working in a team to prepare for future employment.

At Liverpool City Council there are a wide range of career choices including finance, procurement, social care, public health, environmental health, marketing and communications, culture and tourism, highways, licensing, sports and leisure, port health, city developments, education, digital and ICT, human resources and more.
