FT offering Marjorie Deane internship
The Financial Times is offering a six-month Marjorie Deane Internship, supported by the Marjorie Deane Foundation. This is a great opportunity for a promising journalist interested in finance and economics to gain paid work experience at one of the world’s leading news organizations.
Marjorie Deane was a pioneering financial journalist who broke down barriers for women in a career that spanned four decades at The Economist. She set up the foundation with the aim of encouraging young journalists into financial reporting.
The placement will be as a reporter on the Companies Desk, starting in late 2020. It will initially be offered as a remote placement with the hope of joining the newsroom as restrictions lift.
Please apply with a short letter explaining your interest, a brief CV and an original article, no longer than 500 words, on a subject pertinent to finance or business.
Applications should be sent to email@example.com by Nov. 5, 2020. Interviews will take place virtually in November.
The successful applicant must have the right to work in the U.K. and will receive a monthly bursary above the London Living Wage.
