Journalism Training Programme 2018 at Mail & Guardian

Location: Johannesburg


The Mail & Guardian newspaper and M&G Online are always on the lookout for talented, dynamic individuals to join our team.

The newspaper and website are famous for in-depth, analytical, high quality, no-nonsense news features, combined with up-to-the-minute breaking news from South Africa, Africa and the rest of the world. It’s an alternative, intelligent look at the world.

If you are a student fresh out of university, tech or college and looking to start your career in journalism, then this is the ideal platform for you to do so.

The M&G’s official internship programme runs for 12 months starting on March 01 2015.

Our internships are full-time positions, based at the M&G Media Ltd offices in Rosebank, Johannesburg. During this time, trainees will work for the M&G newspaper and its various platforms.

Prospective candidates should have strong news instincts; an excellent general knowledge and a better-than-average grasp of the English language, and should be dynamic, confident and reliable. A driver’s licence is a must.
