Education Publishing Internship London 2024

DEADLINE 19th April 2024

Are you looking for an internship that provides hands-on experience in educational publishing and the chance to make connections at one of the largest publishers of education and research content?

The Springer Nature Opening Doors Education Publishing internship, with Macmillan Education is a paid opportunity in the UK to gain experience in editorial, rights, sales and marketing in a thriving publishing department dedicated to providing resources to schools in the Caribbean.

Many groups and perspectives are currently underrepresented in the publishing industry, which is a challenge that we are actively trying to address at Springer Nature. We are seeking candidates who believe they can contribute to diversity, equity and inclusion in our organisation, in our content, or both. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds, and we particularly encourage candidates from historically underrepresented groups to apply, including but not limited to Black people, Indigenous people and people of colour, people from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds, LGBTQ+ people, people from underrepresented social castes, religious minorities and people with a disability and/or a neurodivergent condition.

The successful applicant will spend up to six months within the Caribbean Schools team, part of the Macmillan Education division of Springer Nature. If selected for this internship, you will be developing skills, experience and insight into a thriving educational publishing business across all its publishing, editorial, rights, sales and marketing functions.

What’s in it for you?

  • A unique opportunity to be a part of a small and dynamic publishing team working within a leading academic publishing group, that focuses on the key market of Caribbean schools
  • Experience of the full product lifecycle from conception through to production, marketing and selling
