Work experience and internships

DK continually strives to attract new talent to the publishing industry. As part of this commitment, DK offers work experience placements and internships across the business in a diverse range of roles, from editorial to design, from marketing and sales to web solutions.

During your time with us, you can expect to gain an insight into how we operate and understand how a ‘ DK book’ is created. You will also undertake a range of tasks that give you a flavour of what an entry-level position in the business area of your placement would involve. You will be fully supported and mentored in an environment that will allow you to build further on the everyday valuable skills you will need as you embark on a career within publishing.

Our work experience placements typically last two weeks in the DK Marketing and PR team, and we offer a contribution towards travel expenses.
