WS Planning & Architecture provide different types of work experience through our Work Experience Programme. Whether you are an aspiring Planner, Architect, or Architectural Technologist we hope to provide an inspiring placement with our Practice. As well as offering work experience in house at our Reigate Office we also regularly attend local Careers Fairs and Enterprise Days (For Schools/Colleges – please contact Spencer Copping , if you would like us to attend yours).
For Students enrolled on a relevant Degree course, we aim to provide 1 to 2 paid work experience placements of up to 6 weeks in the Summer months – June, July, August, and September.
For Students at Secondary School or Sixth Form College, we aim to provide 1 week of unpaid work experience at our Reigate office throughout the year (except during Summer Holidays, which we reserve for Students enrolled on a relevant Degree course).
For Architectural Graduates (Part 1) seeking a “Year Out in Practice” job, or University Students seeking a Placement in Practice, please refer to our Careers page for our current opportunities.
Applications from Students in our local catchment area are given priority.
From protecting our coastlines to creating better homes and regenerating cities, planners help make better places. So the planners who help to plan our urban and rural spaces carry a big responsibility…they are doing nothing less than planning the world we live in.
Architecture is a phenomenon, mirroring the people it serves. Architects and the clients they work with constantly redefine the way our buildings and civic spaces will be; that is an amazing challenge.
Built heritage and the historic environment hold immense significance. Protecting it preserves our culture, history, and artistic legacy. Structures are tangible links to our past, offering insights into the architectural techniques, craftsmanship, and lifestyles of previous generations that need to be conserved for our future.
