    Currently undergoing first year at A-Level (Year12) and need to look for work experience within a few weeks.

    My two career paths I'm hoping to do is:

    Plan A : Join the Royal Marines
    Plan B : Work within the oil industry (more specifically offshore rigging).

    I've looked around can't find anywhere that offers work experience related to what I want to do due to health and safety risks.

    Any help / ideas?

    Do you need experience or are you just getting some to work out what you want to do? Both sound like things that will be difficult to get work experience in as you say. Maybe you can do something related like sea cadets or work in an oil company's office to find out more about the industry?

    Our sixth form requires us to undergo a weeks worth of work experience to help with any applications for uni.

    I've been an aircadet for 2 years and still am now but they doesn't count unfortunately. I will look into company's office as that is something I haven't yet thought of.
