Positive Action Scheme for people from ethnic minority backgrounds

The Guardian believes there should be a better representation of our diverse society in journalism, and each summer offers up to 12 two-week placements for students or graduates from ethnic minority backgrounds. Successful applicants will learn about different aspects of the profession, gaining an insight into the workings of the newspaper, website and our multimedia department.

At the end of the two weeks, we offer each participant a chance to come back and spend one more week with the desk that they felt was most useful and interesting for them. The initial two weeks take place over the summer (July – September). The third week can take place at any time up to one year afterwards to suit the desk and the student. During their time here, each student is also assigned a mentor. The scheme is unpaid.
