The Week Junior is a new weekly magazine for 8–12 year olds. Launched in November 2015 it features a mix of news and current affairs, science, technology, nature, apps, entertainment and more – from the serious to the silly – and everywhere in between. Designed to help young people to make sense of the world, we pride ourselves on creating relevant, concise and engaging content that appeals to children and their parents and teachers.

It’s been extremely well received by all three groups so our focus is to continue to evolve and improve what we do in order to build our brand and cement our reputation for producing high quality editorial for young people.

What will I be doing?

You’ll spend your work experience within the editorial department, joining their editorial meetings and learning how to effectively research for them. You’ll also be able to help with social media so you can see how The Week Junior manage their channels, and there might even be the opportunity to help research for editorial content.

Who should apply?

This is a great opportunity for someone who is interested in media and the publishing industry, as you’ll get a great insight into the inner workings of how a weekly magazine is put together.
