Why be an Intern?
The moment you become a Creative Access intern, you automatically join a growing network of industry professionals and peers who are dedicated to helping you achieve your career goals.
Our hugely successful training programme, including an induction day and monthly evening masterclasses, act as a wonderful opportunity to connect with other Creative Access trainees and alumni. These sessions will give you an invaluable insight into all sectors within the creative industries and are designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of how to make the most of your internship and the various opportunities that are available.
Once you start your internship, you will be allocated a senior mentor who will be on hand to give you regular career advice and help you build your professional network.

“A while ago I was feeling like I’d hit a dead end and couldn’t see any way into serious work in publishing, especially given what I thought about my background. Now I can hardly believe the books I’ve had the fortune of working on, or the people I’ve had the opportunity to speak to. Thank you so much for making it possible for all of us Creative Access interns here at Hachette.”
