Does Floris Books offer work experience placements or internships?

We welcome work experience students to the Floris team: we recruit annually for current Publishing university/college students only. Placements are unpaid and usually take place one day a week for 6-8 weeks. Unfortunately we are unable to offer internships or work experience at other times, or for secondary/high school students. Intern placements are advertised on this page, through the Napier and Stirling University Publishing courses 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.
