Experience @ Hyphen

Work Experience and SWL Placements

Are you a student wanting to learn more about Hyphen? Interested in a career in the arts, cultural services, events or libraries? Hyphen offers a limited number of Work experience & SWL placements through-out the year to support student learning. 

Work experience & SWL students have the opportunity to spend time in different areas of the service, including the library space, galleries and assisting with events. The placement will give you an overview of the varied work that happens at Hyphen.

Due to the high volume of requests, we are unable to guarantee a placement for every application received. We encourage students to apply early as placement opportunities are limited. To better your chance , apply now for a placement later in the year.
