Deadline looms for Mail training schemes

Last year's Mail subbing graduates with Hull Daily Mail editor Neil Hodgkinson

You have until Friday to apply for the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday graduate training scheme for reporters and subs. The successful applicants will probably already be on a post-grad journalism course and have a fair amount of newsroom experience. The courses, which involve several weeks training followed by placements on regional newspapers, begin in September. If you are interested send CVs and six examples of your work to Sue Ryan at The subbing scheme has been running for 11 years and many of the senior subs on the paper - in both news and sport - are graduates of the course. The reporting course has been running for six years. Its graduates include Matt Sandy, who won young journalist of the year in the British Press Awards in 2011 and Fay Schlesinger, joint winner of the investigation of the year award at the British Journalism Awards in 2012. If you are applying for any of these courses you might want to take a look at my advice on how to prepare for an interview. Good luck. More details on HTFP.
