Make your summer count.
Penguin Random House is the UK’s largest publisher, and we have an internship that will run from 9 July – 31 August, paid at London Living Wage.
The Commercial & Vendor Management team is responsible for all the technology suppliers for Penguin Random House, from hardware to software to systems and services, and this internship will teach you about Technology Contracts, how to procure a new technology contract, and how an enterprise IT function runs.
You’ll work closely with the Service Management team and other technology team leaders to define what information they need in a contract, automate reports and create dashboards, as well as make sure no key information is missing from our current contracts.
This internship will be across all our London offices and include occasional travel to our Frating office (which is paid for).
You’ll gain skills and knowledge that will equip you for wherever you go next.
You’ll be part of a team, attending key department meetings to get a better sense of what they do and how they work with other teams too. You’ll take charge of a project with the support of the team, so there is the chance to make a real impact on how we do things. We aim to give you a crash course that will prepare you for a career in technology.
Penguin and Random House came together in 2013 to form the world’s first truly global book publishing company. Our purpose is to capture the attention of the world for the stories, ideas and writing that matter.
We seek out and champion diverse author voices and bring their stories to readers everywhere.
Our readers’ tastes are constantly changing: they are engaging with information in new and exciting ways. So we constantly think about the best means to share a story.
Our job is to lead the field, creating formats that bring ideas and stories to life in compelling and contemporary ways. From traditional printed books, ebooks and audio books to interactive apps, blockbuster films, TV shows, radio, theatre productions, live events and social media, the list is as vast as our imagination. Our books shape the broader cultural life of our society.
Penguin Random House is the place where people who love books, ideas and writing can do the best work of their lives. Creativity drives everything we do. Whether it’s through the stories we publish or the way we do business; it is at our heart.
