Perth Concert Hall Work Experience Program

Perth Concert Hall Work Experience Program

2019 Applications are now closed. We will be accepting applications again from February 2020.

Perth Concert Hall supports work experience or co-curriculum placements in association with secondary, TAFE and higher education institutions.

Perth Concert Hall encourages people with disability, Indigenous Australians, young people and people from culturally diverse backgrounds to apply for work experience or co-curriculum placements.

Within each academic year, Perth Concert Hall provides the opportunity for up to 5 secondary school placements as well as a number of advertised co-curriculum or work experience placements for tertiary students from TAFE or University. Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis from February each year and are dependent on both the organisation’s performance schedule and the availability of each team to support the student throughout their placement. 

As an events based organisation please note our work week is typically from Tuesday to Saturday.  With performance and event schedules varying greatly from week to week we are unable to offer 1 day per week placements.
