Entry level apprenticeships

An apprenticeship can be a great alternative to university. Our apprentices are highly valued for bringing unique skills, and a fresh, innovative approach. You'll be working alongside colleagues and a recognised training provider, and will get the time and support you need to unlock your full potential. You will earn while you learn, and be part of a wider cohort of apprentices, benefiting from training opportunities together.

Typically, our apprenticeships work towards the Business Administrator Level 3 standard and Publishing Assistant apprenticeship Level 3 standard.

Apprenticeship Upskills

We offer existing colleagues a multitude of development opportunities, including an Apprenticeship upskill. It is an opportunity to gain skills, knowledge and experience to support career development. Colleagues work in their existing role while they complete a relevant training programme to gain a nationally-recognised qualification. These opportunities are open to colleagues at all levels and are suitable for varying skillsets.

Work placements and Internships

Our work placements and Internships give students the opportunity to network and meet a wide range of people across all areas of publishing and the wider organisation. They gain insights into the operations of a global publishing house, as well as valuable contacts and hands-on experience, which can be instrumental in gaining employment.

We are pleased to host internships in our Cambridge, Cape Town and New York offices. Our internships are paid and usually take place in the summer, although occasionally openings are available throughout the year.

Work placements last up to two weeks maximum and are unpaid.
