Job Description

Applications are now invited for the MailOnline training scheme which will begin in March 2019.

Our trainees embark on a year-long programme that involves intense training, assessment and on-the-job experience at regional daily newspapers and agencies.

We are looking for journalists with broad interests who want to work for the world’s biggest English-language newspaper website.

Trainees will need to be prepared to work for a round-the-clock operation. There will be nightshifts, regular weekends and they will be covering national and international news at a fast pace.

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.

The course starts in March with an intensive in-house training month during which the trainees are introduced to Mail style and culture. It is followed by three months placement – on a regional daily paper or at a news agency - after which the trainees will join the MailOnline newsroom.

Trainees will be on the best journalism course in the business and paid a competitive salary while they train. Nearly all are offered staff jobs at the end.
