We are pleased to be able to offer a range of different Work Experience opportunities for schools, apprentices, gap year students and horticulturists here at Windsor Great Park.
The following opportunities are currently available:
Schools Work Experience
If you are 18 years or under and live locally to Windsor, work experience opportunities are available through Learning to Work. Your school or college Work Experience Co-ordinator will be able to provide you with further details.
We operate an apprenticeship scheme in our property maintenance department, and this is supported by our experienced and knowledgeable team. Our apprenticeships take the form of structured learning programmes which combine classroom learning with on-the-job training. Any new apprenticeship positions which become available will be advertised on our careers website, so please register for updates.
We are also keen supporters of the new Forest Apprenticeship scheme. This gives people who want to enter the industry through another route the vital experience and skills they need, in order to pursue a career in forestry. If you are interested in this approach, speak to your Forestry Course Co-ordinator.
We are very pleased to continue our long-standing arrangement with the Professional Gardener’s Guild (PGG) to provide opportunities for three students per year to gain experience in The Savill Garden and The Valley Gardens as part of a PGG Traineeship. This prestigious placement is for one year, and is part of a three year rotation at some of the top gardens in the UK. Please contact the PGG for further information, including eligibility criteria and how to apply.
Gap Year Opportunities
We believe it is vital that new entrants to the industry are given opportunities to embed the information they are taught at universities and colleges in a real world context. And so to make this possible, Windsor Great Park has a long history of providing university student placements. Please contact our HR team at email@example.com if you are interested in a gap year placement.
