Work Experience & Placements 

School work experience

At Barrow Hill Roundhouse we offer opportunities for young people to gain experience of working at a unique heritage site.

Roles range from engineering placements with our partner businesses on site to heritage education and learning. 
We can only offer places to a limited number of students each year so please contact us as early as possible to confirm your place.

University and college work placements

With the rise in demand for work placements as part of your course, we can be flexible to your needs. We are always interested in engaging students in small projects which can contribute to your course as well as providing a beneficial outcome for us.

As a public heritage site, we are always keen to gain student contributions in a range of departments including but not limited to:

  • Education
  • Marketing
  • Museum studies
  • Graphic design
  • Digital media
  • Events
  • Catering


We can also offer opportunities for young people wanting to gain experience at a working site to volunteer and build their CV.

Please contact us if you are interested in doing so.
