The German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle is offering a high level eighteen month journalism traineeship for English native speakers. We are looking for talented young people with an interest in politics, society and culture. Apart from English as a native language, we are looking for applicants with some knowledge of German and possibly one of our thirty other Deutsche Welle broadcast languages.
The traineeship is paid (around 1,600 Euros per month) and can lead to employment in one of our departments in Bonn or Berlin.
The traineeship consists of six months of theory and practice-oriented seminar blocks with a focus on the latest developments in journalism, for example multimedia storytelling and data-driven journalism, as well as live reporting, television and presenting. Alongside the seminar blocks, trainees spend nine months doing placements in various DW editorial departments in Bonn, Berlin and one of our foreign bureaus in Brussels, Washington or Moscow.
As we are expanding our English program, we are keen to offer the opportunity to graduates of top British and American universities and journalism schools.

Online applications are currently being accepted. The deadline is October 31, 2014.
