Guido is hiring paid summer interns. We are looking to try out people who are considering becoming journalists, not people who just fancy a few weeks interning in SW1 on their CV. It also helps if you are not a politics ingénue.
Being a Guido reporter does not suit shy introverts who would be uneasy about calling up a cabinet minister to ask some embarrassing questions. Former interns at Guido now occupy senior editorial roles in the broadsheets and tabloids, some have gone over to the dark side to work in government and Downing Street, others you see on your screens every day. The reason Guido alumni go on to further success is because working at Guido puts you in at the deep end of the Westminster politics shark tank. This year we will be looking by the end of the summer to hire a trainee reporter and a data journalist who understands statistics, we want to “try before we buy” over 3 week terms a number of interns with a view to hiring.
