Work experience and internships

Come and try us on for size

We know that publishing can be a bit of a mystery.


How do we decide what to publish?


How do books get made?


And who tells the world about them?

What we can offer you and how to apply

We have year-round paid work experience slots of 1-2 weeks’, where you’d be shadowing a team and getting to grips with day-to-day life here. It’s a learning opportunity – a chance to learn about the world of work and go behind the scenes.


Applications for work experience between October and December will open in August – head over to our work experience page to find out more about our placements and how to apply.


Our paid internships are 10 weeks long, take place during the Summer, and are usually advertised in the Spring. You will own a project during this time, so don’t worry, you won’t spend your summer chained to the photocopier!

Hints and tips

For work experience, we offer places based on random selection, so just be curious and be yourself.


For internships, the skills we’re looking for will vary depending on the department. Check out our blog for practical tips on applications and interviews as well as meeting some of our ex-interns…
