Work Experience

For over a century generations of great journalists have started their careers at the Press Association and today we still give many people their first taste of life in the media through our work experience scheme.

 

As you would expect, places are very limited but every year, a number of would-be journalists or students interested in a career in the media spend some time in our multimedia newsrooms and other departments, learning how PA tells stories in words, pictures and video.

 

If you are looking for editorial work experience, there may be limited places in our London office.  Email Teilo Colley (teilo.colley@pressassociation.com) and tell him why he should consider you.

 

For any other work experience placements, please email an up to date CV, specifying your area of interest and your availability to:
