Sun Summer Internship


Applications have opened this week for The Sun’s first Summer Internship Scheme.

The internships, open to 18 to 25-year-olds, are available in roles including reporting, news-gathering, design and production, across print and online.

Placements will last up to 12 weeks and be based mainly in London. But interns could also work at our Manchester or Glasgow offices.

Ian Murray, Executive Director of the Society of Editors welcome the launch.

He said: “”It is brilliant to see a paper as influential and successful as The Sun offering the chance for those seeking a possible career in journalism to experience how their dynamic newsrooms work.

“I would encourage anyone interested in gaining rare experience and insight into one of the great news titles of the world, regardless of background, to apply.”

Interns will work at the newspaper or the website.

A Sun spokesman said: “We’re delighted to offer the next generation the chance to experience life in a working newsroom and learn from our brilliant team.

“We hope these internships will represent the first step towards successful newspaper careers.”
