About What is the Japan Society Opportunities

Work Experience

Please note that we are currently working from home and unable to offer work experience until further notice.

The Japan Society aims to offer work experience opportunities for secondary school pupils (GCSE & Sixth Form). However, the Society is only able to accommodate a single work experience candidate at any one time – capacity is therefore limited.

Work experience placements typically last one to two weeks and are unpaid.

If you would like to spend time working with the Japan Society, please send a CV and cover note to Heidi Potter, outlining your areas of Japan-related interest and specifying what aspect of the Japan Society’s work most appeals to you.

We do not take work experience applications from local authorities or academic supervisors – all applications must be made by the individual concerned.
