The internship scheme is Oxford-based and will start on 1 July 2019 and finish on 23 August 2019.

The internship will give you the opportunity to work full time (35 hours per week, Monday to Friday) for eight weeks within a specific team at the Press.

The key objective of the internship scheme is to allow you to gain a range of essential skills and work experience, which in turn will support you in your future career.

About you

Having completed A-Levels (or equivalent), you’ll be able to demonstrate strong interpersonal and organisational skills. An experienced Microsoft Office user, you’ll have the confidence to work independently and the ability to work in a team, adapting your approach to deliver tasks on time.  

Application Process

  1. Online application – you’ll be required to complete a statement of up to 500 words detailing why you are interested in the internship opportunity and what skills and experience you offer. Alongside this you’ll upload your CV which should contain your personal, education and work experience information.
  2. Online ability tests – to be completed within 5 days of receipt.
  3. Assessment centre – there will be a variety of tasks to complete including a short interview with hiring managers.

The assessment centres will take place in our Oxford offices. We are able to offer some assistance with travel expenses for those candidates based outside a 30 mile radius of Oxford.

Due to the short term nature of the internship we are unable to provide sponsorship for anyone not currently eligible to work in the UK.

Please contact with any queries relating to this position.

We are committed to supporting diversity in our workforce, and ensuring an inclusive environment where all employees can thrive. We seek to employ a workforce representative of the markets that we serve, and encourage applications from people of all ethnic, cultural and social backgrounds.
