Job Opportunities

Internships

We currently require interns to work on a number of forthcoming projects within Black Dog's editorial, design and sales & marketing departments.

Editorial internships at Black Dog involve undertaking a varied and diverse work load on any number of different projects. Work duties range from assisting with the initial stages of research of a project and helping to oversee its smooth running until completion. In addition to research, you will also be responsible for liaising with contributing writers, fact-checking, general administration and potential writing work.

Sales & Marketing internships at Black Dog involve preparing and sending out sales material to booksellers and our sales reps, updating title information and helping out with general administrative tasks. We are looking for candidates who are highly organised, computer literate and able to handle a busy and varied workload. 

New Development internships at Black Dog would suit a candidate with a passion for development, the arts and publishing. The role would involve assisting in research and data management of new approaches to international bodies including galleries, museums, organisations, academics and private companies. Tasks undertaken include liaising with clients, arranging development meetings and co-ordinating mailings to new approaches. Candidates should be highly organised, have a good knowledge of MS Office and the ability to communicate professionally with potential clients.

Design internships at Black Dog involve supporting our in-house design team on a range of different projects at various stages of book production. Work duties range from assisting with the initial stages of compiling, managing and organising large amounts of visual material, such as scanning, touching up & picture research in conjunction with editorial, moving on to working with page layouts and final stage proofing. Ideal candidates will have a high degree of Photoshop and InDesign experience and be happy to work at a basic level across several projects. For design internships, applicants must send a pdf of work examples or a link to a website where examples of work can be seen. Please note that due to the high volume of applications only successful candidates will be contacted.

Internships last for the duration of three months; though Black Dog Publishing are happy to accommodate interns on a part-time basis, we would encourage full time commitment where possible as this creates greater familiarity and efficiency with workloads. All travel costs within London Zones 1-2 will be reimbursed.

If you would like to submit an application, please send a covering letter, specifying which internship position you are interested in, and your CV to Marianne Templeton: office@blackdogonline.com

Please note due to the high number of applications received we are unable to reply to all applicants individually.
