CNN’s award-winning Digital team in London is looking for an intern, so if you’re passionate about news and current affairs, and want to work for one of the biggest names in journalism, read on.

Our global team creates content consumed by millions of people every day, and with tectonic changes in the world, news and impactful storytelling are more important now than ever.

A successful CNN intern is committed to quality journalism, has strong knowledge of international issues, a keen interest in the digital media landscape, and a sharp eye for the stories that spark conversation on a daily basis.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work alongside a team of dedicated and experienced journalists, attend regular editorial meetings and participate in the editorial process.

They will research and write news stories, and as the internship progresses, there will be opportunities to pitch and write distinctive features. They may also assist the international programming team to curate the homepage and other platforms.

Proficiency in another language would be desirable, but not essential. A degree is not a must-have, but a passion for journalism is.

CNN advocates for diversity and welcomes candidates from all backgrounds, ethnicities, abilities and genders, and we are committed to creating both a workforce and content that are as diverse as the global audiences we serve. See what we are doing for Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging here at WarnerMedia:

  • The internship is paid and runs from September 1 to December 31. Applications close on Monday, August 17. Interviews will take place in the 10 days before the internship begins.
  • The internship is usually based at our central London office, but as this one will be held almost entirely remotely, the intern will be expected to work from home and regularly communicate with the team via video conferencing.
  • Applicants must have the right to work in the UK and must be based in the UK for the duration of the internship.

To be considered, please send a CV, completed application form and three writing samples to Angela Dewan and Eliza Mackintosh via, specifying "Digital News" and the start date you are applying for in the subject line.
