Public Services

How to develop your experience

The public services sector is diverse with roles available in many different areas and organisations. Exploring the sector and the roles available to you through relevant work experience will be a great advantage when you come to think about and apply for graduate roles.

You can begin building your skills and experience at university by volunteering, doing an internship, having a part-time job or by doing a professional placement.

Internships and work experience

Local councils and authorities

To gain experience of working in public services, you could look for part-time work or full-time work during the vacation periods in one of the local councils.
