Work Experience Requests

BCFC get a high number of requests for work experience placements on a daily basis and the Club are committed to supporting the Communities in which we work. However, due to limited capacity and resources we have very few opportunities available for work experience placements and those we do have available, are fulfilled through our work with our charity partners, which are chosen on an annual basis and will be published on our careers site. This means that unfortunately we are unable to accept or agree ad-hoc requests for work experience placements.
