“Our graduate programme has shaped some of the Telegraph’s top talent such as Features Writer Bryony Gordon , Sports Reporter Jonathan Liew, Assistant Political Editor Ben Riley Smith and Foreign News Editor Jess Winch . We’re now looking for young people with diverse backgrounds that have a passion for tackling the dynamic challenges we face as a multi-media business known for agenda-setting news, insight and commercial success.
They may have studied subjects traditionally inspiring media careers, or different ones such as data science, digital technology or computer engineering. Our new approach will give them a practical introduction to The Telegraph and unique learning opportunities with two leading organisations in journalism and media business education.”
