Deutsche Welle internship applications now open

Joshua Cole, 16th March 2023

Deutsche Welle (DW), Germany's international broadcaster, is offering the Mike Thompson/Clare Atkinson internship for aspiring multimedia journalists. 

This paid internship is a unique opportunity for applicants to gain on-the-job training in DW's multimedia newsroom in Bonn, Germany, with the possibility of extension or freelance work.

During the three-to-six-month internship, interns will work in DW's English language online newsroom and undertake a range of tasks, including producing multimedia content, writing news articles, and editing English language news articles. If everything works out for both sides, DW may organize further experiences at different DW departments, including DW TV in Berlin.

Interns will also gain exposure to international stories and receive references from a highly respected international broadcaster.

To be eligible for this internship, applicants must have a native level of English, good German language skills, a university degree, commitment to community broadcasting, and work experience in print/online newswriting.

We encourage any aspiring multimedia journalists who may be interested in this opportunity to apply.

Applications can be sent to [email protected] and should include copies of your CV, university degrees, references, and work samples.

Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an interview with DW and CBAA representatives in Australia.

For more information, please call the CBAA on (02) 9310 2999.
