Join the PinkNews work experience scheme in London
PinkNews is currently welcoming applications for our editorial work experience scheme based at our London office, and for the PinkNews Awards 2015.
Successful candidates will secure a placement learning and practising the key skills associated with online journalism: researching, interviewing, writing, editing and promoting news articles on social media. Each year, we welcome around 24 people onto our scheme from a variety of backgrounds and connections to the LGBT community.
We are also looking for those interested in LGBT media events, to attend a placement at the PinkNews Awards on 21 October.
During the placement, you will learn and practice news writing skills, as well as having the opportunity to write longer features, or a comment piece on a topic of your choosing.
Many people get the chance to interview a politician or celebrity, and are able to edit and publish their own articles by the time they leave.
At PinkNews we are looking for people who are able to hit the ground running, who we can invest time and our expertise in, and welcome on board the busy team.
During the PinkNews Awards on 21 October, work experience placements will have an amazing chance to help with coverage of the event, to meet top politicians and business leaders, as well as leaders from the LGBT community.
To apply, in the first instance, or for more information, please send a covering letter and a CV to [email protected]. You should hear back from us within a few working days.
