Mail looking for trainee journalists

The Daily Mail group is once again recruiting trainee journalists. Since 2003 I have been training sub-editors for the paper and since 2007 I have been training reporters. Three years ago we started a course for online journalists. This year’s intake, apart from those destined for the MailOnline and the Daily Mail in London, included five trainees for in New York and nine for Daily Mail Australia in Sydney. The Mail also took two trainees on to its Stephen Lawrence scholarship. Many graduates of the courses are now seniors at the Mail. 

Some of this year's trainees

The training is a real investment by DMGT. The successful applicants spend weeks training in the Mail’s London offices and are then placed at regional newspapers and agencies before returning to the Mail the following year. 
The training will begin in August and September 2016, so is suitable for those graduating this academic year. 
The deadline for applications is December 18 - but we would appreciate it if you could apply well before then. If you are interested, send a covering letter, your CV and three examples of your work to Sue Ryan at There are vacancies for trainee reporters and subs (both news and sport) on the Mail and journalists (news and sport) for MailOnline. Details are on Gorkana and Hold The Front PageIf you are applying you might want to take a look at my advice on how to prepare for an interview. Good luck.
