HarperCollins Graduate Scheme
HarperCollins' successful and established Graduate Scheme is
opening for applications for 2019.
HarperCollins is proud to publish prize-winners
and international giants, rising stars and home-grown heroes, chart
toppers and cult favorites, and many of the world's most trusted
education and reference brands - all for adults and children
alike. We have a 200-year history full of firsts. But we're not
stuck in the past - we're inspired by imagination and we lead with
innovation in all that we do. We're currently the only publishing
house to produce an audiobook for every one of our titles and we're
leading the way on diversity and inclusion with the best diversity
network group awarded by Business in the Community. We are also the
only publisher in the Race Listing Top 100 for the last two years
running. In addition to all of this, we've recently celebrated
winning the Publisher of the Year award.
We are very proud of our graduate trainees. They help us stay
ahead, be creative, and challenge us to think and act differently.
Over the last 3 schemes we've hired 27 talented people into the
business through the process.

collaboration, a multi-media suite, and a fabulous restaurant
