How to Apply
Before you apply, please keep in mind that this internship is full-time (not part-time or freelance) and is based at Eurogamer’s Brighton office (so they cannot consider a remote-working arrangement).
This is a paid internship, meeting the National Living Wage, lasting three months from approximately the end of June to the end of September 2018.
While we welcome all applications, you must be able to include examples of your writing, whether that be from a personal blog, previously published work, etc. This is the main thing we will be looking at to evaluate your application.
Eurogamer reviews every application in detail and are grateful for them, but are not always able to reply or offer feedback. Thanks for your understanding.
If you can demonstrate that you have the gumption to take on the role described above, Eurogamer love to hear from you!
