Work experience

ENO offers work experience opportunities for secondary school age students.

Work Experience Scheme

At English National Opera we wish to support young people to develop their understanding of the work that goes behind creating an opera. We hope to inspire and nurture creativity in our work experience placements and give them an insight into the arts sector.

We currently offer placements of up to five days and aim to place you in a variety of departments to gain a wide picture of the hard work that goes behind putting on an opera in the West End. This work experience scheme is aimed at school students between the ages of 14-18 years old; who are passionate about the creative arts industry.

We are also able to offer a placement of up to 10 days for students aged 18+.

Due to the seasonal nature of the organisation, certain times of year are more suitable than others to provide the best experience for candidates.

We regret that due to the high volume of applications we are unable to contact unsuccessful candidates. Successful candidates will be contacted at least one month before their requested start date.

If you have any questions regarding our work experience scheme please contact [email protected] for more information.
