Internships at Curtis Brown

Everyone starts somewhere - could you start here?

Media and publishing are amongst the most popular career choices, yet often these industries can seem like a closed shop for those who don't already have experience or contacts.

We offer bright and energetic people an opportunity to discover what agencies are all about. Our internship programme gives an introduction to the world of agenting in our Books, Translation Rights, Theatre Film and Television (TFTV) and Talent (Actors, Presenters, Musical Theatre and Commercials) Departments.

The internships usually last for between 3 and 6 months and you will work with agents and their assistants to gain hands-on experience of literary and talent agenting, publishing and the media. You should have good administrative skills and genuine enthusiasm for and interest in the industry. We'd like you to have some experience of working in an office. 

The scheme is open to graduates, undergraduates and non-graduates alike.  You must be a minimum of 18 years-old to undertake our internship scheme programme. If you are not planning to go on to further or higher education after school, then you will be eligible to apply for a scheme start date from the September following your A-levels or A-level equivalents.

You will be paid the London Living Wage, i.e. pro-rata salary of £21,548 per annum. This is payable monthly, in arrears, on the last working day of each month. We ask that you work from 9.30 to 6pm (with an hour for lunch) and that you commit to stay with us for the full period requested.

Please let us know if you require any reasonable adjustments during the interview process.


1. You must already have the right to work in the UK (we will ask you to provide original documentation as evidence of this). 

2. You must be able to make your own arrangements to live in the Greater London area during your internship. Unfortunately we are not able to help you with finding accommodation or with travel costs.

3. Please note all our roles are currently based on a hybrid working pattern which involve a mix of working from home and from our central London offices. This is envisaged to continue in the medium term, but is subject to ongoing review.

Good luck!

We’re very lucky because we normally receive a lot of interest in the vacancies we advertise. Regretfully this also means we can’t promise to reply personally to everyone who applies, we hope you understand.

We aim to build a creative environment that celebrates the differences of our clients and colleagues, offering equal opportunities regardless of gender, race,
socio-economic background, age, disability, sexual orientation and national
origin.   In our role as conduits and champions of cultural expression we are conscious of our responsibility to reflect the world around us. This means making a considered effort to create an inclusive culture in the workplace and promote opportunities for the broadest possible range of talent.  We welcome all
applications from people with interesting ideas, skills, and experience.
