Applications are now invited for the MailOnline training scheme which will begin in March 2022. Our trainees embark on a year-long programme that involves intense training, assessment and on-the-job experience at regional daily newspapers and agencies.

We are looking for seven journalists for the newsroom and one for sport. All will have broad interests and want to work for the world’s biggest English-language newspaper website.

About The Role

Trainees will need to be prepared to work for a round-the-clock operation. There will be nightshifts, regular weekendsand they will be covering national and international news and sport at a fast pace. The successful applicants will probably have a degree and will have shown a commitment to journalism by writing for their student newspaper/website and gained work experience in newsrooms.

The course starts in March with an intensive in-house training month. It is followed by three months placement – on a regional daily paper or at a news agency – after which the trainees will join the MailOnline newsroom or sportsdesk. Trainees will be on the best journalism course in the business, given a two-year contract and paid a competitive salary while they train. Nearly all are offered staff jobs at the end.
