Everyone starts somewhere - could you start here?

Media and publishing are amongst the most popular career choices for graduates, yet often these industries can seem like a closed shop for those who don't already have experience or contacts.

We offer bright and energetic first-timers an opportunity to discover what agencies are all about. Our internship programme gives graduates an introduction to the world of agenting in our Books, Theatre Film and Television, Presenters and Actors departments.

The internships last for 12 weeks and you will work with agents and their assistants to gain hands-on experience of literary and talent agenting, publishing and the media. You should have good administrative skills and genuine enthusiasm for and interest in the industry.

You also get paid £236 per week, payable in arrears on the last working day of each month, directly into your bank account. In return, we ask that you work from 9.30 to 5.30 (with an hour for lunch) and that you commit to stay here for the full 12 weeks.

Finally, you must also be either a British citizen or have a valid work permit, and you must be a graduate or currently studying as an undergraduate. Unfortunately, we are unable to help interns with work permits, and we can't help you with finding accommodation. You will need to make your own arrangements to live in the Greater London area during your placement.
