Positive Action Scheme

The Guardian believes there should be a better representation of our diverse society in the media, and each summer offers placements for two weeks for those aiming to start a career in journalism.

How it works

Every year our London office runs four schemes during the summer for BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) applicants, and one scheme for people with disabilities. 

Successful applicants will gain an insight into the profession, working across the newspaper and website. 

You’ll also have an experienced journalist as a mentor to offer advice on careers. 

The deadline for receipt of applications for our 2019 placements has now closed. 

Please revisit the site again in February 2020 to apply for our 2020 Positive Action Schemes.
