Penguin Books is offering an eight-week summer internship aimed at individuals from lower socio-economic backgrounds. This paid opportunity is designed to immerse interns in the publishing industry, allowing them to work on independent projects while gaining skills applicable across various career paths. Each intern will be compensated with the London Living Wage and offered financial support for commuting from outside London.

Eligibility for this programme is specifically targeted at those who have either been eligible for free school meals or whose highest-earning parent/guardian was employed in non-senior management or non-self-employed roles, broadly categorized under technical, craft, semi-routine manual, service, routine manual, service occupations, or were unemployed. The initiative seeks to diversify the voices within the publishing sector, providing a platform for new perspectives.

The application process begins at midday on 16th April and closes at 5pm on 29th April 2024. Candidates are not required to submit a CV and cover letter but will instead answer three short questions via an inclusive hiring platform focusing on communication, problem-solving, and eagerness to learn. The selection process includes interviews and group tasks to be held on 22nd and 23rd May, with all communication and tasks completed virtually.

The internship operates on a hybrid model, with an expectation of two office days per week in London.
