Journalism intern wanted

Cub reporter

London Journalism Centre (LJC) is looking for a journalism intern to research and write news stories about the journalism industry.

You need to know how to write a simple news story to apply for this role. You will work one to two days per week in our Dalston office and receive support and guidance from journalist and LJC Director Jamie Elliott. In addition to producing news stories, you may also be asked to record audio interviews with journalists and others to be turned into pod-casts.

Your work will be published on the LJC website and elsewhere. We have had stories picked up by the Daily Mail, the Times and Press Gazette.

Hours can be agreed to suit you, Monday to Friday, and you will receive travel costs for travel to work from within zones one to three. The internship will last for a maximum of two months.

You need good written and spoken English for this role, a keen interest in journalism and current affairs, and a willingness to work hard and sometimes under pressure.

The primary focus of this internship is about helping you develop your skills as a journalist. However, you will also be expected to help out from time to time with more mundane tasks, such as maintaining LJC’s social network presence.

This is a great opportunity to do some real journalism and get your work published.

To apply, please email your CV and at least one news or feature article you have written to jamie@journalismcentre.co.uk

We expect a high volume of applications, so we will not be able to accept telephone enquiries about this role.

Closing date for applications: 5pm, Friday October 25th.
