In an industry first, Hachette UK is proud to launch a new traineeship programme in partnership with literary agency Curtis Brown and booksellers Waterstones! Taking part in a broad and exciting programme, ten trainees will gain unprecedented exposure to all elements of the journey of publishing a book, from pitch to production.
This will be Hachette UK’s fourth intake of trainees and the programme will continue to focus on making publishing more accessible to under-represented groups, as part of the publisher’s ‘Changing the Story’ vision for diversity and inclusion. It is actively seeking applications from candidates from a Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) background, applicants from lower socio-economic backgrounds and particularly men from both of these backgrounds to improve representation of these groups in Hachette UK’s editorial staff base.
The trainees will spend the entire year within one of the trade divisions or the education business and will specialise in either editorial, marketing and publicity, or rights. Some of the trainees will spend a month in literary agency Curtis Brown and booksellers Waterstones.
