    I suggest ringing/popping into stores/GPs/offices requesting to speak to management, and asking them on the procedure to get work experience. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll find something you'll enjoy and learn from soon! Just keep pushing and asking! Good luck!

    I suggest retail and ask the manager personally.
