The Economist Group is the leading source of analysis on international business and world affairs. We deliver our information through a range of formats, from newspaper and magazines to conferences and electronic services.
We are looking for four graduates or equivalent with a passion for media in general, and publishing in particular, to work as interns for six months during 2009. Working with senior executives (including the chief executive and the finance director) in our offices in central London, you will help us in market and other research, and business analysis.
Our business is global, so we are keen to receive applications from anywhere in the world. We’ll help with securing a work permit if you need one. You will need to be reasonably fluent in spoken and written English.This is not an internship in journalism or editorial work. You will need to arrange and pay for your relocation to London and your accommodation during the internship. Each intern will be paid £300 a week.
If you are interested please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
telling us about yourself, your experience and why we should choose you.
We’ll stop looking at applications after March 6th 2009.
The Economist is a weekly paper of news, ideas, opinion and analysis. With its headquarters based in London, it is printed in six countries and published on the internet, with more than 80% of its circulation outside the UK. Because of its independent and international editorial perspective, it is read by more of the world's political and business leaders than any other magazine. Editorial independence is at the heart of The Economist. The principle of anonymity is also central to the paper's philosophy. The Economist has no by-lines, because it believes that what is written is more important than who writes it.
Economist Intelligence Unit
The Economist Intelligence Unit's comprehensive portfolio of country analysis provides information that businesses, governments and international organisations need in their dealings with individual countries. The combination of independence, global coverage, consistency and frequency is unrivalled. The office based in London produces a wide range of political and economic analysis and forecasts for over 200 countries.
The Economist Group has occasional internships, which may arise from time to time during the course of the year. The opportunities may be in Sales, Marketing, IT, Conferences, Events, Office Management, Editorial, EIU and many more across the Group. The internships are based in Europe, Americas or Asia.
