Britain’s most successful newspaper group is looking for trainee reporters. This is an exciting and challenging opportunity to work at the Daily Mail newspaper.
Our trainee reporters embark on a year-long programme that involves intense training, assessment and on-the-job experience at regional daily newspapers and agencies.
The successful applicants will probably have a degree and will have shown a commitment to journalism by writing for their student newspaper/website and gained work experience in newsrooms.
This is a really good opportunity for people interested in global affairs and financial journalism - starting in September. Applications close 28 February.
The FT says it encourages international applications.
