Hachette’s Fresh Chapters Traineeship is a 12-month intensive scheme which offers a chance to work in a creative and rapidly changing industry. The programme will include a six month placement in an editorial department where you will be able to have a real creative input. The remaining six months will be spent with another department at one of the many publishers within Hachette UK.
Hachette also offers a Fresh Chapters Internship for 8 weeks for those who want to gain an insight into the publishing industry. Working at Hachette will enable you to experience working in a collaborative environment, surrounded by talented, passionate people. There are also many book related benefits, opportunities for free and discounted books, author talks and events.
