Work Experience FAQs

The ins and outs of our work experience programme

Which office can I complete my work experience in?

We offer work experience in our Bishops Stortford, Cambridge, City of London and Norwich offices. When applying please ensure you apply to the office you wish to be located at during your work experience placement. Please note you are able to apply for more than one office.

Do you guarantee a work experience placement?

Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee work experience placements as spaces are limited and we receive a high number of applications each year.

What is the application process?

You will need to apply through the website. We do not accept emailed applications at this time. Please ensure you include both a CV and covering letter which details your office preference and why you wish to apply for a placement with us. You will also need to select your available dates.

We shall confirm whether you have been successful in securing a placement with us as soon as possible after your application.

When can I complete my work experience?

Please note we offer one week work placements only. The dates available will depend on the availability of the department and office. You will have the option of selecting your preferred start date when you apply through the website. Please note if a date is not listed then unfortunately we are not able to offer a placement at this time.

Can I reapply if I am unsuccessful?

If you are unsuccessful this time round, we would be very happy for you to reapply to another office or with different dates or to reapply in the future.

What department will I be working in?

We mostly offer work experience across our Business (Accounting) and Corporate (Auditing) teams, although do have some opportunities in other departments. Please see the Services part of the Price Bailey website for more information on what each department does. During the application process you will be provided with a list of available dates and departments so that you can choose the most suitable opportunity.

What will I be doing on my week of work experience?

We aim to offer students an insight into the Professional Services sector by giving you the chance to shadow employees who are working on current clients and projects. You will see first hand the type of work Price Bailey is involved in and may have the opportunity to contribute to this. We believe that our work experience placement will give you a good understanding of the accounting profession and general employment skills which you can use in your future career.

If I have already been for work experience at Price Bailey can I come again?

We aim to offer opportunities to as many students as possible and therefore are unable to accommodate those who wish to re-join a team they have been placed with previously. If you have previously undertaken work experience with us but wish to apply for a placement in a different department, please contact us directly using the enquiry option in Contact Us on the website
