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.

If you succeed in joining the 2019 HarperCollins Graduate Scheme you will be based in our offices in the News Building. We share this with our News UK and Dow Jones colleagues in the London Bridge Quarter, next to the Shard and opposite the famous Borough Market. Our open-plan office has amazing views across London, and includes a variety of break-out areas to aid inspiration and collaboration, a multi-media suite, and a fabulous restaurant floor, book shop, tech bar and our very own Harper Arms pub.

You will need to have an eye for detail, be commercially aware and solutions driven. Have a creative mind, be willing to learn and come full of new ideas. Honest with integrity and the desire and ability to work in teams, building great relationships is also a must. Crucially, you need to demonstrate potential and the ability to learn quickly.

Lastly, A BIG bookshelf (or a lot of space on your device of choice) … you'll need it!

The starting salary is £23,000 per annum.

The closing date for applications is 31 March 2019.
