Overview

Are you a quick-thinking, initiative-taking, problem-solving graduate who wants to get ahead in the media industry? We have a number of graduate vacancies and our aim is for you to become some of our future leaders. Every year Dennis Publishing take on graduates to work across our commercial division. We are looking for enthusiastic and driven candidates to join our award-winning sales business. With a six-month internship you will learn all areas of a thriving media business but this internship will focus on advertising sales.

 

What will you be doing?

  • Six month internship across all areas of Dennis, the six largest magazine media business in the UK.

  • After training you will take responsibility for selling advertising opportunities to a number of clients and agencies.

Who are we looking for?

  • Confident communication skills.
  • Results-driven
  • Be able to demonstrate persuasion and tenacity.
  • Be able to understand business and media solutions.
  • Be able to work in a team but be self-motivating.
  • Be able to present/demonstrate ideas.
  • Ideally should have a passion, or interest in, sales and media.
  • Able to live and work in London.
  • In the last few years, 60% of our interns are still with the business three years later so we look for committed individuals.

 

Also beneficial:

  • Experience of working as part of a team
  • Passion for media
  • Tenacity to complete an intensive six-month internship

 

Why Us?

  • We’re award winning. You will be working across award-winning brands and in award-winning teams and joining a culture where innovation and success are encouraged.
  • Our Commitment. We’re very proud to work for the benefit of The Heart of England Forest; an exciting and ambitious charity aiming to plant and preserve the largest native broadleaf forest in England. Founded by our late chairman, Felix Dennis, every employee gets the chance to plant a tree in their name so you can feel part of our vision.
  • We’re always thinking of you. You’ll have access to plenty of great benefits such as 28 days holiday, a contributory pension scheme and discounted gym membership. There are also yoga and boot camp classes to get involved in if the gym membership is not enough.
  • We recognise hard work. Have you always dreamed of taking time out of work to travel the world? You’ll be given the opportunity to take a 6 week paid sabbatical after five years service. And if you’re lucky enough to win our Employee of the Year Award you’ll be sent on a holiday of a lifetime to the island of Mustique in the Caribbean.
  • We know how to have fun. Whether it’s swatting up for one of our pub quizzes, creating a costume for our famous fancy dress parties or taking part in a fitness challenge as part of our annual charity day - we can guarantee you will share the enjoyment of life at Dennis.

 

Dennis does not discriminate. We’re just interested in your skills, your talent and your potential. So if you feel like this role is for you, please press apply now.
