We have lots of great work experience placements available for our members and their families this year

Opportunities are available in various teams throughout Royal London, and each placement will have its own duration and availability date. The options available include:

  • A full-time four-week Work Taster placement
  • An Educational Work Experience placement

The aim of Insight into Work is to provide members and their families with experience of work at any point in their career. So far, we’ve welcomed mostly those looking for experience while still in education, but it could be that you’ve taken a career break and want to try something new. You could also be simply wondering if another career might be better suited to your abilities – playing to people’s strengths is something we’re all about at Royal London.

Work Taster placement (four weeks)

The four-week Work Taster placement is designed to provide you with a detailed insight into a role where you will perform tasks and work as part of a team. Your placement will provide you with the necessary access and support from your team and will be paid at a minimum wage rate. This placement is ideal for anyone who is looking for a more in-depth experience.

Educational Work Experience placement (one or two weeks)

The Educational Work Experience placement is designed to provide you with insight into a role through observing the team performing their day-to-day work. Your placement will provide you with support from your team and Line Manager, and you will receive a reimbursement of lunch and local travel costs you have incurred. This placement is ideal for anyone who is attending school, college or university. For educational institutions that only require a one-week placement, we will review these applications on a case-by-case basis.
