In partnership with the Aziz Foundation, the Financial Times is delighted to offer a paid internship with the editorial team to a British Muslim interested in pursuing a career in journalism.
The successful intern will be active within British Muslim communities and demonstrate intimate knowledge of issues affecting these communities as well as demonstrating long-term commitment to community/ societal development within Britain. The FT is one of the world’s leading and most respected news organisations and the intern will have the opportunity to work with teams across the newsroom to gain a greater understanding of the FT.
They are looking for an enthusiasm for journalism and genuine interest in the FT and our core subjects of business, economics, current affairs or arts and culture.
In return you will gain newsroom experience, an understanding of both our print and online product, learn about our audience and have the guidance of some of the world’s finest journalists.
You will assist with research, fact check articles for publication, learn how to commission stories and be encouraged to pitch your own ideas to desks across the newsroom.
You will be supported during your time with the FT by a team leader as well as a pastoral mentor.
