Internships

 

We regularly run a paid full-time six-month internship in the Books department (once a probation period has successfully been completed). We are looking for bright, enthusiastic and hard-working individuals committed to a career in the publishing industry and, ideally, within a literary agency; you must be willing to turn your hand to a variety of tasks including Reception and general office admin duties; database management; reader’s reports and processing of contracts. There may be photocopying and tea-making too. Excellent attention to detail, a willingness to learn and a sense of humour are essential. We pay a fair salary (£18k p.a. pro rata) and in exchange we expect our interns to commit for the full period of the placement.

 

We are currently looking for an intern to work with us for a 6-month fixed period from Tuesday 14th April. Could all interested applicants please send a CV and covering letter to Christabel at  christabelmckinley@davidhigham.co.uk by midnight on Thursday 27th February. Interviews will be held the following week, so please indicate in your application if you think you will be unable to make it to the offices in London on those dates. We regret we are unable to sponsor work visas for overseas applicants. All candidates will be notified on the status of their application by mid-March, and any further queries can be addressed to Christabel at the email above.

Good luck, and we look forward to hearing from you!
