Careers with Wigs Up North

Work placements

We were all students at one time or another and someone in our past gave us a break which enabled us to start our career. As we are now the ones in a position to assist others, it is only natural for us to offer help and advice.

We receive many requests for work experience and are always on the look out for people that stand out from the crowd. Your time with us enables you to see how we work and it gives us the opportunity to see what you can do and how you relate to others. It is a first glimpse into an industry that requires a lot of hard work to succeed in, but with enough determination and passion, it can be done!

Our work placement is offered on a four week basis, the first week will be a trial placement that depending on the outcome, will be continued for the remaining three weeks. You will be expected to work Monday to Friday during our shop opening hours of 10am - 5pm.

Please note that our month long placements are offered to people who have completed a college course or have a suitable level of experience.

We have put together a work experience pack that tells you what we expect from you and you can expect from us in return. This can be found on the fact sheets page on our website.
