The Job:

Primary responsibilities include research, fact-checking, transcribing footage, assisting on shoots, contributing story and show ideas, attending planning and creative meetings and sourcing images and footage.

The Essentials:

Available opportunities:

News intern
Our intern will be assigned to the digital news team, which creates content consumed by millions of people every day – from dynamic breaking news coverage to hard-hitting feature journalism. The intern will work alongside a team of dedicated and experienced journalists, attend regular editorial meetings and participate in the editorial process.

Our intern will be assigned to the global programming team, which curates our homepages and mobile app. This team sits at the sharp end of our output – right at the point where our journalism meets our audience. There will be opportunities to hone your headline-writing skills, learn how to write engaging push alerts, and edit some of our key landing pages. There will also be opportunities to pitch to the news team – so you have the chance to finish your internship with a collection of bylines. The successful candidate will have solid news judgment, good writing skills, and sharp eye for how stories should be presented.
