We’re passionate about what we do.
Come work with us.
PFD offers bright and energetic first-timers an opportunity to discover what agencies are all about by participating in our paid internship scheme. All applicants must be a British citizen or have a valid work permit, which we are not able to organise on your behalf.
The PFD intern will work with the various primary agents at PFD, along with assisting our Foreign Rights, Broadcast, Film & TV, and Accounts department as needed. We aim for our interns to gain a wide ranging, hands-on experience of aspects of working in a literary agency, as well as a general sense of the different parts of the publishing industry. You should have good administrative skills and attention to detail, and the ability to juggle and prioritise multiple tasks at the same time – good time management is essential. A hard-working and enthusiastic attitude is also a must. No prior experience in the publishing industry is needed.
Our internship runs on a 1 + 3 month basis, in which we take on our intern initially for one month, and if all is going well on both sides we then extend this to three months. Office hours are 9:30am – 5:30pm with an hour break for lunch, and we pay our interns London living wage.
Applications for autumn internships are now open and will close on July 31st. The internship will start on September 5th. To apply please send a CV and cover letter to Kieron at email@example.com.
Sadly, due to the number of submissions, we may not be able to reply to everyone.
