At our central London bureau we offer 8 internships spanning from news gathering to special feature programmes, digital and sports. Interns play an important role in the daily operations of CNN. In fact, many of the current journalists within the London bureau started out as interns.
The internships are designed for recent broadcast journalism graduates or graduates from a related field seeking a career in journalism. You must be a British/EU citizen or have the right to work in the UK long term prior to applying for our intern programme. We are unable to accept people with short term work/study visas.
