Ministry Of Sport Now Searching For Q3 Journalism Interns

Ministry of Sport (MOS) has begun the search for the Q3 2022 journalism intake, following the success of the previous intakes in 2022.

The 12-week internship program, since its introduction in 2020, has led to career growth and outcomes for a number of participants, including roles at the AFL, racing.com, online media publications, and public relations agencies.

The Q2 intake welcomed Maeve Dougherty, Caleb Runciman and Anzaya Karim to the MOS team, who will successfully graduate from the program on 19 August.

Reflecting on his time as an intern, Caleb Runciman, said: “Being offered the opportunity to contribute as a Ministry Of Sport intern has been a beneficial stepping stone in my career as a journalist.”

“Mentored throughout the process, the ability to further develop my writing skills throughout my time has made for a welcoming and industry recognised time at MOS.

“I’d recommend the internship to all keen sport loving journalists, who are looking to develop a career in modern news writing, alongside building connections in an ever-growing industry,” he said.

On the prior success of the internship, MOS editor, Matt Skilton, said: “The internship is a great way for journalism students and recent graduates to develop their skills and get a step up on the competition when trying to enter the sports industry, and for me it’s very rewarding to be able to assist in that process.”

“I’ve had the privilege to work with some great talent as the editor during the last intake and as an intern myself, and I’m looking forward to helping more people reach their potential in the media industry,” he said.

Working within part of a small team, interns will collaborate on special projects under the guidance of the editor and will get a taste of what it is like to work in a professional newsroom (while working from home), gaining valuable contacts and relationships with members of the sports industry, both in Australia and internationally.

Additionally, while working two days a week, interns, will be tasked with creating engaging content for the Ministry of Sport site, including news stories, feature interviews, social media and digital content.

If you are interested in the Q3 2022 intake, you can apply via the LinkedIn job posting or email your cover letter and resume to [email protected].
