Job description

Would you like a career in Media? An amazing opportunity exists to join a dynamic publishing and events group offering a new media graduate scheme in London or Kent from September 2019

The Mark Allen Group, one of the UK’s leading independent media companies, is seeking to appoint graduates for its annual media graduate scheme from September 2019.

This presents an exciting and unique opportunity to be at the heart of a dynamic, very fast-growing and developing publishing and events business, joining a team of highly motivated and talented people, based at our London or Kent office. The group offers challenging and rewarding careers for young and enthusiastic people.

The placement will offer you experience in either sales, editorial, marketing or events. You will be required to maintain and develop relationships as well as achieving new business in either publishing or events in our business areas in healthcare, education, music, business to business, leisure and engineering. This will give you an excellent insight into media publishing and the essential revenue gained from sales, with a real focus in contacting clients in a consultative way. Working alongside the editorial teams, you will gain skills in either sub-editing or writing content for the journals and magazines, both in print and online. An experience in the marketing or events divisions will offer you a broad insight into research and implementing marketing campaigns and event organization.

Most importantly, we will work together with you in your learning and development programme, during which you will gain relevant knowledge and real sales, editorial, marketing and events skills, which you will put to use in your forthcoming career.

The graduate scheme is for one year and is paid. Upon successful completion of your placement, this will lead to a potential full time employment position within the group.
