Publishing Intern (unpaid)

We are offering an enthusiastic current publishing student the opportunity to take part in a semester-long internship programme.

Working one day per week for an academic semester ensures our interns gain unparalleled insight into the full publishing cycle, and allows the opportunity to work on extended projects. The placement is primarily marketing-focused but with the opportunity for interns to work on editorial and production projects where possible.

The placement will begin in January or February 2018. This is an excellent opportunity for any publishing student looking to gain insight into the industry.

Applicants must be current undergraduate or postgraduate publishing students.

Closing date: Monday 6th November at 9am.


Anthroposophical publishing work placement programme (paid)

Floris Books is delighted to announce a new programme of six-week publishing work placements specifically for people with an interest or background in anthroposophy (the work of Rudolf Steiner).

Floris Books has been at the heart of the anthroposophical community for forty years. We are beginning a rolling programme of paid work placements intended to give those with an anthroposophical background experience of the publishing industry.

For full details, please download the Anthroposophical Work Placement Description. If you would like to apply, please also download the Application Form which must accompany all applications.


Does Floris Books offer work experience placements or internships?

We welcome interns to the Floris team: we recruit annually (towards the end of the year) for placements lasting for a semester or an academic year (sorry, current publishing university/college students only). Unfortunately we are unable to offer internships at other times, or for secondary/high school students. Intern placements are advertised on this page, and on Twitter and Facebook.


Does Floris Books work with freelancers?

All our key functions – editorial, production and marketing – are handled inhouse, so we rarely use freelancers for that type of work. However, we sometimes use freelance translators and illustrators. If you think your illustration style might fit our list, please email with a link to your blog or online portfolio. Please don't send illustrations in the mail, or as attachments to emails.
