Media Trust offers placements at top commercial media companies

The Media Trust is offering charity media staff the chance to experience work at top media organisations. Its Media Connections 2008 scheme provides free placements at organisations such as regional, local and national newspapers, the BBC, ITN and ITV and even Heat magazine.

Applicants must already work for a UK charity or voluntary sector organisation and have some media relations experience. Successful applicants will shadow experienced journalists and producers and gain an understanding of why some stories are considered newsworthy and how editorial ideas are developed.
