Develop your skills with us

We offer a range of opportunities providing valuable experience and a change to develop knowledge and skill in a real and exciting working environment.

Our programmes provide insight into particular careers at Historic Royal Palaces and allow you to see behind the scenes of our magnificent historic buildings.

"Historic Royal Palaces is where unique ideas are born."

Andrea Backer, Gardens and Estates



Our apprentice programmes consist of a programme of work experience and learning, together with ‘off the job’ learning/education, leading to a nationally recognised qualification. The range of qualifications range from post GCSE to degree level apprenticeship standards with approved providers and college based or on site assessment.

We currently run apprentice programmes within Gardens and Estates, Visitor Services, Information Systems and Retail. These can be from 12 months up to 3 years of employment at a world famous heritage site.

Opportunities are advertised on this website so keep an eye out as we recruit throughout the year.

Current vacancies

“In Retail I learnt a lot about working with the public, and I hope to transfer these skills in my next rotation in Warding, which I started this month. As a slight history nerd, I am really excited to learn as much about the Tower as possible with the team here.”

Amy Monella, Apprentice, Tower of London 2018-19

Work experience

We are currently re-designing our work experience programme and considering apprenticeship programmes that can help us ensure that our palaces are open for everyone to experience and be part of. We will be updating this page once these programmes are in place with details of how you can apply.

Equal opportunities

Historic Royal Palaces is an equal opportunities employer and we particularly welcome black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) applicants as we consider these groups are currently under represented both within the heritage and cultural sector and within our own organisation.

"Working at Historic Royal Palaces is a great experience as you get to meet and collaborate with people from many different backgrounds."

Catherine Buffrey, Senior Creative Producer (CP&I)
