    You really have to do some research around this. Think of places that do the sort of work you want to gain experience in and then get in touch. Keep doing this till you find somewhere willing to take you on.

    Small world, that's my neck of the woods.

    As the above poster said, you will need to go out and look. I know for a fact there are plenty of IT companies in both Bristol and WSM, so you will need to do some calling around to find out if they have work experience schemes. The big corporates (Airbus etc up in Filton for example) almost certainly run work experience schemes, so it's always worth asking (or Googling) there first.

    Thanks for your response, I had never until now considered what sort of companies would have a tech support department as the majority is probably outsourced nowadays. I will do some more research.

    Hewlett Packard have an R&D division in Bristol that take (or at least used to) work experience students. It's much cooler than tech support.

    You're right it is outsourced, but then why not apply to the outsourcers? SERCO etc all have regional branches in Bristol.
