ITV News has launched a new summer programme, offering a number of paid internships at its newsrooms in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Gateshead, Leeds, Manchester, Norwich, Southampton and St Helier in Jersey.

The organisation says it is looking for "bright, creative people who are showing real potential and would benefit from the experience of spending 4 - 6 weeks in our newsrooms.  They will be right at the heart of what we do and it's a chance for them to test their potential before taking the next step in their career." 

The internships will be paid and will take place between June and September 2013.

Students will be able to find out further information and request an application form by emailing this address: newsinternships@itv.com

Given the tight timescale I recommend students from Year 3, Year 2 and MA postgrads do this NOW.

Great opportunity: ITV News paid summer internships
