The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has launched a paid intern scheme to place six successful postgraduate journalism students with the data journalism teams at some of the UK’s leading media outlets.
Students who are on a UK postgrad journalism course, or graduated in the previous academic year from a postgrad course, can apply for a month-long internship at:
BBC News Data and Visual Journalism Unit – London
BBC Data Journalism Unit – Birmingham
Trinity Mirror data journalism team – Manchester
Telegraph data journalism team – London
Press Association data journalism team – London
ONS Digital Visual.ONS team – Newport
Students will take up their internship between July and August, and will receive £2,500 in expenses.
All candidates will need to be prepared to accept an offer at any of the media outlets and no preference can be given to location.
