Work Experience

WS Planning & Architecture provide the opportunity for at least two work experience placements in the Summer months. Whether you are an aspiring planner, architect or looking for office work experience we hope to provide an inspiring week with the practice.

We are pleased to confirm that Work Experience placements in the Planning Team have been filled for Easter and Summer 2017.

The Challenge

Every summer we get involved with the National Citizen Service which is powered by The Challenge. The Challenge is the UK’s leading charity for building a more integrated society. They work on a local level to bring together people from all ages, ethnicities and walks of life, connecting communities and building trust.Through their three programmes, National Citizen Service, HeadStart, and Step Forward, they bring together people from different backgrounds, building trust and developing young peoples’ employment and life skills.

Since 2013 our involvement has been two fold. Firstly, we participate in the Dragons Den Events that run throughout the year whereby we present to a group of Challenge Students at our Head Office and in turn provide feedback on their individual Team Challenge Presentations followed by a Dragons Den style presentation with all Teams at a local school of college. Secondly, we attend the annual Ignite Careers Event at Surrey University where members of the WS Team provide Careers advice, carry out mock interviews, CV writing and Networking workshops.

It’s fantastic to be part of such an enthusiastic organisation that continues to offer amazing experiences for the young people involved from all walks of life.
