Oneworld prides itself on showcasing a very diverse, inclusive workplace. In 2016 we went a step further and launched our Diversity Access Programme to help ensure that our intake of interns reflects the rich diversity of the society in which we live and work, and for whom we publish.

The publishing industry has been criticized in the past for being too white and too middle class, and this new initiative is designed to help address this issue and ensure that those working in the industry are more representative of wider society. This is essential if publishers are to produce books that showcase the full diversity of voices to be found here in Britain, and tell the stories that are not being told. This is especially true for our children’s list, to help our young readers access stories in which they can see themselves and that reflect the issues they experiences in their own lives.

We are happy to work closely with organizations sharing this important objective, and to date we have liaised with both Creative Access and Spread the Word, but we are equally happy to receive applications from aspiring interns from a broad variety of backgrounds. To apply for one of our internship programmes please click here to go to our careers page. 

Booker-winning novel picked for special pre-Christmas promotional push

Foyles will have displays of The Sellout, carrying a gold and white Foyles Book of the Year sticker, at till points and front of house across all branches in London, Bristol, Birmingham and Chelmsford. The book will be highlighted on in-store screens, windows, homepage and social media channels.

Simon Heafield, Head of Marketing and Brand at Foyles said: "Paul Beatty’s novel is important, timely and original. From publication day the book has enjoyed a phenomenal reception at Foyles from our booksellers and customers alike, leading us to name it as our Book of the Year for 2016. We fully expect the huge demand we've seen at Foyles for this book to continue right up to Christmas, and beyond."

Heather Baker, senior buyer at Foyles, said: "To say this is a daring, multi-layered, iconoclastic, laugh-out-loud masterpiece is to understate how much I loved it. It made me cry, it made me snort with laughter, and it still makes me furious. Beatty shines a fierce light into places that many would rather remain hidden, and does so with such sharpness, anger and erudition, underpinned with so much love and humour. It is in the truest sense a great American novel."
