The Orion virtual internship will be an exciting opportunity to see how a major publishing house works, gain invaluable insight into the publishing industry, and learn about the role that each department plays in every step of a book’s journey.

At Orion, we believe every story matters. Open, agile, passionate and innovative, our mission is to bring the best publishing to the greatest variety of people. Ambitious to continually raise the bar, we believe good stories can come from anywhere and so encourage and value contributions from everybody here.

Orion is a division of Hachette, one of the largest publishing groups in the UK, with 12 publishing divisions and over 60 imprints. Everyone here is proud to be in the business of opening doors and minds.

Orion believes that publishing should be for everyone, at any stage of their career and in any role. To demystify the publishing industry, we are specifically targeting this scheme towards people who have ideally started their career and spent time away from work for any number of reasons, or are looking into changing their career and want to give publishing a try.

We are offering a six-week, paid and fully flexible/remote work experience placement. Depending on the start date you are selected for, you will be interning alongside one to two other candidates during your time with us.

 

What you'll be doing

You will be placed within a department and given the opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the role, team and company, working on projects and gaining a thorough understanding of the publishing process. You will also have the opportunity to gain experience across different departments – attending a variety of company meetings, as well as the chance to ‘meet’ lots of different people across the company and senior team and receive informal mentoring or career guidance.

 

Who we're looking for

We are specifically targeting this scheme towards people who have ideally started their career and spent time away from work for any number of reasons, or who are looking into changing their career and want to give publishing a try. 

We believe publishing should be for everyone, at any stage of their career and in any role. We value the experience gained from any and all different jobs in life, and that is why we encourage applicants from all walks of life, especially if those walks didn’t initially include publishing.

We are looking for someone that has a passion for storytelling; someone that is keen to learn; someone pro-active with a strong work ethic and a desire to apply and gain new skills.

To be eligible, you must be over 18 and based in the UK. Please note this is the minimum requirement and we welcome people of all ages to apply. No prior publishing experience is required.
