The Mark Allen Group, one of the UK’s leading independent media companies, is seeking to appoint up to six graduates for its new media graduate scheme from September 2017.

This presents an exciting and unique opportunity to be at the heart of a dynamic, very fast-growing and developing publishing and events business, joining a team of highly motivated and talented people, based at our London office. The group offers challenging and rewarding careers for young and enthusiastic people.

We would welcome applications from candidates who are able to offer the following key elements:

  • Drive and ambition, with a can-do attitude and creative flair
  • Confidence and self motivation with assertive approach
  • The ability to build and develop client and reader relationships
  • A target driven approach and desire to succeed

The placement will offer you experience in either sales, marketing or editorial. You will be required to maintain and develop relationships as well as achieving new business in either publishing or events in our business areas in healthcare, education, music, business to business, leisure and engineering. This will give you an excellent insight into media publishing and the essential revenue gained from sales, with a real focus in contacting clients in a consultative way. Working alongside the editorial teams, you will gain skills in either sub-editing or writing content for the journals and magazines, both in print and online. The marketing divisions in both publishing and events will offer the opportunity to drive and manage innovative campaigns.

Most importantly, we will work together with you in your learning and development programme, during which you will gain relevant knowledge and real sales or editorial skills, which you will put to use in your forthcoming career.
