Northern:Lite Open Days

HarperNorth, the Manchester based division of HarperCollins, is opening the virtual doors to welcome in would-be industry professionals for a learning day.

If you want to spend a day finding out more about editorial, marketing, publicity and recruitment tips within publishing, add your details via the link provided and you could be chosen to join in – all without leaving your home!

We would normally host a selection of learning placements at our different sites for those wanting to break into the industry, however due to Covid-19 we’re not currently able to welcome anyone into our offices. Instead, we would like to give you the opportunity to sit in on our online meetings, meet the team and ask questions about working in the Publishing industry. This learning day will not only give useful insight into Publishing and give you the opportunity to network, but can also be added to your CV.

Candidates will be chosen randomly, and the learning day is best suited to those who have not yet begun their professional publishing career.

Our open days will be held on September 15, October 6, November 17 and December 15. We will let candidates know via email at least two weeks before each session begins if they are invited to join us on the day.

You will need to be available from 10am to 4pm on one of the days, and you will need to have access to Microsoft Teams, either on a laptop or via the app.


(Please note some of the wording on the next page isn’t editable, your application isn’t subject to a points score, the selection is random.)
