Opportunity for work experience at HM Treasury

This summer the Treasury is running a virtual Work Experience programme. We are offering successful candidates a week of experience in the Treasury. They will have the opportunity to experience what we work on, how we work and what it’s like to be at the very heart of government.

The Treasury is the United Kingdom’s economics and finance ministry. We sit at the heart of government and work on issues from environment and tax policy to sustainable growth and supporting public services.
We are responsible for formulating and implementing the government’s financial and economic policy. Our aim is to raise the rate of sustainable growth and achieve rising prosperity and a better quality of life with economic and employment opportunities for all.

This summer the Treasury is running a virtual Work Experience programme. We are offering successful candidates a week of experience in the Treasury. They will have the opportunity to experience what we work on, how we work and what it’s like to be at the very heart of government.

The week will include:
• Work-shadowing current Treasury officials
• Seminars and presentations on current issues the Treasury is working on
• The chance to research and report on a project of interest to you
• Mentoring with Treasury officials
• Learning first-hand about future careers in the Treasury

The programme will run virtually from Monday 9 August to Friday 13 August. We encourage applications from students in their final years at college or school (Year 12 and above), from any courses or subjects.

At HM Treasury we have an incredibly broad remit; our work touches every citizen of the country. So, it’s important our employees come from the widest possible range of backgrounds, bringing us the widest possible range of perspectives and ways of thinking. We are committed to ensuring that all staff are able to realise their potential and achieve a healthy work-life balance. We value diverse perspectives and welcome applicants from all backgrounds.

The programme is open to UK and EEA nationals who have a 3-year footprint in the UK. Applicants will be expected to undergo a baseline security check before the programme. Applicants will need access to a laptop or tablet.

HM Treasury has a strong commitment to equality and diversity. Our aim is to be an open and inclusive department, recruiting and retaining diverse, talented and high-performing people who support and develop one another.
