Internships and Work Experience


We are pleased to host internships in our Cambridge, Cape Town and New York offices. Our internships are paid and usually take place in the summer, although occasionally openings are available throughout the year. We are also proud to partner with Creative Access on a six week summer programme in Cambridge. Our interns are encouraged to use the opportunity to network and meet a wide range of people across all areas of publishing. They gain insights into the operations of a global publishing house, as well as valuable contacts and hands-on experience, which can be instrumental in gaining employment. 

There are no internship openings at the moment, but keep checking our careers website.

Work Experience

We are pleased to host work experience for school students in our Cambridge office. Our central programme for Year 12 and 13 students usually takes place in early July. This is an ideal opportunity to find out how an international publishing house works, whether you are interested in working for us straight after school (through an apprenticeship), after university (through the Graduate Programme), or later in your career.

Most of the placements are based at our main office, University Printing House, Shaftesbury Road. The Press Bookshop placement is based at 1 Trinity Street, with occasional sessions at the University Printing House. In previous years placements have included a variety of opportunities such as Design and Marketing in our main publishing teams (Academic, Education, Education Reform and English Language Teaching), as well as roles at the Bookshop and in Customer Services, Communications and Procurement. Our central programme provides the opportunity for students to benefit from sessions together, such as CV and interview workshops, and we encourage people to learn from each other’s experiences.
