Due to the current pandemic and the uncertainty of when staff will return to the offices, we are unfortunately not able to offer work experience placements this year.
We’re a small and ambitious Council serving over 80,000 residents, offering a wide range of public services.
A work experience placement with us will provide you with an opportunity to gain and improve important skills required for your future career at work. It also gives you an insight into the types of work available in local government.
Most of our placements will be based in the Council Offices in Oxted, where you'll spend time supporting the work of a small and friendly team. Your day to day duties could include checking and replying to e-mails, answering the telephone, monitoring post, preparing documents, filing or research. You may also shadow members of the team and assist them with their day to day work, or you could accompany a member of the team to a meeting or an event.
Work experience placements usually last for one week.
