Due to the generous funding of The Arts Council England and National Lottery, Moon Lane Ink is able to offer a rolling 1 month internship.


The internship will provide the successful applicant with work experience in both bookselling and the publishing industry, and would also play an essential role in developing and supporting other initiatives within the company.

You do not need a degree or previous experience in the industry. If you make the shortlist, we will pay for your travel to the interview. If needed, we will also support you in finding accommodation through the ‘Spare Room’ scheme.

We are looking for certain qualities but do not expect you to fit them perfectly. We are more interested in whether you can imagine yourself growing into, and benefitting from, the role.

  • You have a long-term passion to have a career in publishing or bookselling

  • You have a ‘can-do’ attitude

  • You understand where your love of reading and books comes from, and the impact that it has had on your own life

  • You are driven by a need for greater diversity in publishing

  • You’re adaptable – no two days at MLI CIC are the same

  • You’re a ‘people person’ – we are customer-focused, ever-welcoming and striving to take down barriers between people and books


Term: 1 month

Salary: Based on a per annum rate of £21,944

Main Location: Moon Lane Books, 300 Stanstead Road, London, SE23 1DE
