I would like to maybe do finance/banking, ict/technology or science in the future and I'm looking for work experience. I'm also quite into fashion and music, this would be a last resort work experience destination?
So far all major banks have rejected me based on health and safety, not having the resources for work experience or not doing it at the moment. I don't know anyone in "high places" and all major retail shops (house of fraser, john lewis, debenhams) have rejected my application.
I need to do this in June and I have nothing at the moment. I am absolutely stressing, please help?!

I did my work experience at H&M in 2011. In 2012, I was given a part time job there; so even if it is slightly off tangent for what you want to do for a future career, it is still valuable experience. Perhaps you could apply for an electrical store as obviously you would need knowledge of technology but it also gives you an insight to a business environment and how to cater for customer needs and dealing with the public (transferable skills to the banking sector).
