Job Description

Applications are invited for the Daily Mail training editorial scheme (reporters) that begins in September 2022. We are looking for budding reporters with broad interests who want to work for Britain's most successful newspaper group.

We are also inviting applications for our Stephen Lawrence scholarship which helps students from under-represented groups break into journalism.

There is also one position for a trainee digital fashion journalist. 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 post-grad in journalism or NCTJ qualification and will have shown a commitment to journalism by writing for their student newspaper/website and gained work experience in newsrooms.

We want self-starters with a real interest in current affairs and the ability to bring in stories and write accurately and in style. Shorthand at 100 words a minute and a clean driving licence are an advantage.

Previous graduates of the training scheme now hold senior positions on the Mail and its sister paper the Mail on Sunday.

The course starts in September with three weeks of intensive in-house training during which the trainees are introduced to Mail style and culture. It is followed by five months placement – on either a regional daily paper, the Scottish Daily Mail in Glasgow or the Irish Daily Mail in Dublin - after which the trainees will join the Mail 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.
