    I am in year 12 and want work experience in my 6 weeks holiday near july after exams. I've already got around 1-2 weeks booked within charity and reception work however i want something more serious as well. My interests are business/finance politics and even law related topics. Any advice? I will call banks soon but anything else?

    Any work is good becayse what you are after is an opportunuty to use skills. You shoul o to your careers service and find out where they have placed people.
    You could think about any government departments where you live/ civil service. Courts etc. Accountants and other professions. maybe the chamber of commerce to make contacts. At your age you cna sell any work experience. How about your local MP or make contact with the Council?

    Just make sure you contact the right person, you keep your interests short and sell yourself well. have a CV and know exactly what your sales pitch is.
