Why join us?
The transition from education to working life can be very daunting. At Boots, we are committed to supporting young people starting out in their career through our virtual work experience programme and resources.
We are delighted to be working with a national charity, Speakers for Schools, to deliver our virtual experience programme. This multi-staged and interactive programme takes place over a three month period, starting in January 2023, and just requires a couple of hours commitment per month during this time. You will have the opportunity to find out more about us and hear from our experts about the life-changing work we do, as well as build your skills and confidence.
At Boots care is at the heart of everything we do.

Our top tips for landing a work experience placement
Getting work experience with a well known company can be quite competitive. Here’s four top tips that will help give you an edge during your application.
- Tailor your communication. If you are applying for more than one work experience position, ensure that each of your applications is unique. Bonus points if you also shuffle your CV and experience to best suit the role.
- Make the most of limited experience. Nobody has lots of skills or experience at the beginning of their career, so make the most of what you have done, and look for innovative ways to show learnings from any outside-of-school activities or work.
- Be proactive and reach out to companies directly. If you are unsure about a specific requirement, then ask a question.
- You could look to do some volunteer work, or a virtual work experience, to help boost your skills and make your application look even stronger.
