Work Experience

Yarra Libraries has a commitment to support students who are interested in learning more about the library industry. Work experience or placement opportunities are open to secondary and tertiary students currently engaged in studies in Australian educational institutions, as well as to those who are not currently studying but are seeking to gain practical work experience.

Opportunities are subject to availability within the organisation and preference will be given to students who live or study within Yarra, however, if capacity permits we will accept interested students from further afield. For tertiary students, undertaking a work placement must be a requirement in order for you to successfully complete your studies.

To submit an expression of interest, click on the link for Work Experience & Placements found under our list of current opportunities.
