    I need to find a work experience placement ASAP! My school only notified me a week ago that my placement needed to be found.

    I’d like to do something to do with any of these things:

    Human/marine biology
    Zoology or animal husbandry
    Retail
    Media - magazines, etc.
    Fashion

    Have any of you got any ideas? Personal experiences? Thanks in advance!

    Contact any local establishments directly via phone AND email asking them if they're happy to take you on for placement.
    Which one of those interests you the most/ what do you plan to achieve from the selected placement?

    Hi!
    I did work experience at Pets at home, it covers retail and zoology, getting something that covers all of those things is difficult- if not impossible.
    You can do work experience at pets at home if you are under 16 (not sure if this applies to you)
    You can't do certain things, such as climb ladders or use a certain spray but that'll be the same for any work experience.
    The best thing to do is to call your local one because not all of them offer work experience and if this is the case then I'm sorry.
    Just don't expect to be spending your time with the animals, if you do an early morning placement you may be asked to help with them before the store opens but other than that you'll mostly be dealing with the retail aspect of pets at home.

    Good luck
