Our internship programme: recruitment

KatOur Company, Recruitment

Every year, as we emerge from winter, we welcome a blizzard of applications for our summer intern scheme. The internships we offer give a proper insight into real work at a publishing company, and they’re an incredibly useful way for us to find talented people. The internships are really popular – hardly surprising, as publishing is a highly competitive field. But it’s more than that. Here we treat interns like any other member of staff – there’s no incessant photocopying and no requirement to make the coffee!

Spain, Oxford, Perth: Olivia’s journey

My publishing career began in Oxford, following a year of teaching English in Galicia, Spain. Although I was initially reluctant to leave a life of tapas and travel behind, I decided it was time to fulfil my ambition to work in publishing.

Committees and groups at Prepress Projects

The committees are a great chance to have a positive effect on the company culture and to improve people’s working days. It also adds some more variety to the work I do on a daily basis. Each group has a different set of responsibilities, though issues and ideas do sometimes overlap.

Coaching training at Prepress Projects

GillianManagement, Our Company, Training

When it was announced that the company was investing in training in coaching skills, I was really quite excited about taking part in it. I confess that I had only a vague idea of what coaching might be — something about inspiring people to achieve their full potential — and no idea about how to go about it.
