Could you join the award-winning BusinessGreen team?
BusinessGreen is hiring. We're currently looking for someone to join our sales team and this week we're launching our new intern programme with a view to strengthening our award-winning editorial team.
The internships will be paid positions in line with the London Living Wage and we're keen to offer the roles to talented and ambitious individuals who are committed to working in environmental business journalism.
Here is how it will work. The plan, which like all plans may be subject to change at some point, is to offer three 12 week internships over the course of this year. The positions will offer the lucky candidates real journalistic experience - we are not looking for someone to make the coffees, in fact, as the office's resident caffeine addict I'll be making most of the coffees.
Instead, we are looking for an aspiring reporter who is capable of, well, reporting - quickly, accurately, prolifically, and to deadlines. In addition to reporting on the latest green business news, you'll help to expand BusinessGreen's social media presence, so we also want to see evidence that you can come up with exciting ideas on how to present engaging content online.
In return, we'll help ensure your stories reach a wide and influential audience and we'll help you develop the skills you need to work in environmental and business journalism.
There is no guarantee of a job at the end of each internship, but we are planning to expand our editorial team in the future as BusinessGreen continues to grow and as such, those interns who impress would almost certainly invited to apply for any permanent role that arises.
Interested? Here's how we'd like you to apply. We want to see a CV, because HR likes that sort of thing, but more important is evidence that you can write and are genuinely passionate about the topics we report on.
So, we'd like to see examples of two short news stories you think BusinessGreen should have run over the last month but didn't and a blog post of no more than 750 words on the green business topic of your choice. Please include these in the same document as your uploaded CV.
Remember, we only want content that is sharp, uniquely tailored for a green business audience, and challenging to conventional business-as-usual thinking.
If you are interested in applying, please submit your CV and story examples, alongside a short covering letter using this link. The deadline for applications is March 31st.
We're looking forward to reading your stories.
