Placements suitable for 14–19 year olds

Non-laboratory placements only

On the right of this page you will find Job Descriptions for the placements currently available for students aged 14-19 years.

Only students who fulfil both of the following criteria are eligible to apply for a placement:

  • Those aged between 14 and 19 years in secondary education
  • Those living, or studying at a state school, in Camden

Job Descriptions state the dates that the placement is available, the type of work the placement involves, what is expected of the successful student and deadlines for applications. Please download the Job Descriptions that interest you. New Job Descriptions will be added as new placements become available, so please check this page regularly.

If you would like to apply for a placement, please download the application form, also on the right of this page. Note that the application form will only be available to download if there are Job Descriptions available. The application form asks for the following information:

  • your contact details and those of your school
  • the subjects you are studying, and any grades if you have them
  • your reasons for applying for the particular work experience placement

Once you have filled in the form, send it to your teacher to complete a brief reference on the final page. Your teacher should then email the completed form to an organisation called Inspire! who are processing work experience applications on behalf of the Crick. Inspire! will be in touch in due course to let you know if you have been successful. Applications received after the application deadline will not be accepted.

Note that as the number of placements is limited, we cannot guarantee that all those who apply will receive work experience at the Crick. We recommend that students also consider applying for work experience with other organisations.





We ask Inspire! to contact all state schools in Camden to advertise our offers of work experience. If the person responsible for careers/work experience at your school is not aware of this opportunity, or you would like more information regarding what Inspire! can provide for your school, please contact them through their website at:
