Paid editorial internships | Autumn/Winter 2016
DK – the world’s leading illustrated reference publisher – is seeking highly talented and motivated editorial interns to come and help us create new ways of engaging our global audience and to learn from the best in the industry.
DK, the award-winning illustrated reference publisher, launched an editorial internship scheme in 2013 in memory of Christopher Davis, one of the founders of DK, who died in December 2012. Christopher was DK’s Global Publisher until his retirement in 2005 and was the driving force behind many of DK’s iconic and best-selling titles. His passion for publishing and unwavering commitment to editorial quality inspired an incredible number of editors over the years. DK is offering up to seven editorial internships in 2016 to continue his spirit of nurturing editorial talent.
If you are awarded one of these, you will be working in one of our creative editorial teams in the heart of London. You will be involved in a wide range of editorial tasks, including research, editing, writing, and picture selection for both print and digital products. You might be working on lifestyle or reference books on a range of subjects, or perhaps on our children’s list for early years up to 9 year olds, or as a web editor on our children’s website, or maybe in the Licensing division on their Star Wars™ or LEGO® titles.
The internships will take place from 12th September to 16th December 2016.
If you are interested in applying, please email your CV, and a covering letter telling us why you'd like an editorial internship at DK, along with up to 250 words about your favourite DK book and why you like it.
To submit your application, please email DKeditorialinternship2016@uk.dk.com by 30th May. Make sure you get your application in by that date to avoid disappointment!
Once we have reviewed all the applications, some candidates will be invited to attend an interview and have a further assessment at DK's offices at 80 Strand, London WC2R 0RL, and also meet with some of DK's Publishing Directors and Managers. The interviews will be carried out on Thursday 23rd June 2016, so please be sure you would be available on that date should you be selected for this next stage. You should allow a whole day for this process.
Can you please let us know if you need to have any special adjustments made for this day at DK’s offices, should you be invited to attend.
