Everyone knows that publishing is notoriously difficult to get into. At Oneworld, our internship programme aims to give young people with aspirations of working in UK publishing the valuable experience they need to get started. In fact, we have an excellent track record of helping interns to find their first jobs in the industry or even employing them ourselves.
As a small independent publisher, we provide our interns with the kind of insight into the industry that the bigger houses cannot, simply because of their size. Whilst our interns do tend to be based in one department, they are not restricted to just that one area. The advantage of working in a small company like ours is that you get to see all the different departments, how they work and how they work together.
Typically, placements at Oneworld are between two and three months in length. There is a lot to learn and experience has taught us that placements need to be this long in order to be truly valuable.
