It will involve hands-on, on-the job practical training. The interns will be thrown in the deep end in terms of in-depth reporting, in line with Daily Maverick standards but there will be opportunity for shadowing and mentoring and additional training.
It is an ideal opportunity for graduates/young journalists who aspire to quality, gutsy journalism.
Multi-media skills are important, and applicants should have their own computer and cellphone. The paid internship will be for a year, starting January 2018, and interns will need to make their own accommodation and other arrangements.
There are a number of internship positions available in our offices in Cape Town, plus one position in Johannesburg. Please submit a CV, copies of your writing/multimedia work and also a 400-word motivational article about why you would like to join the Daily Maverick. Also indicate what you would bring to the media organisation.
Deadline for submissions is Friday October 6. Please indicate your location preference – ie Cape Town or Johannesburg. Send applications to Janet Heard: firstname.lastname@example.org
