York Archaeological Trust understands the role placements can play in helping individuals to gain work based experience in the archaeological and heritage sector.

We host two placement application periods with involvement in both The JORVIK Group of attractions and some of our non-public facing archaeological and heritage departments. 

Details of these can be found at

We occasionally also host additional placements with our archaeology and department based teams. Details of the placements will be listed below when available. 

Please note we cannot accept placements under 18 years of age. For anyone under 18 years of age we offer work experience via the NYBEP (North Yorkshire Business & Education Partnership) scheme which offers York schools opportunities to get involved in the Trust. Details of this scheme are available in all participating schools and colleges.
