The Traineeship
DW is looking for young people from all over the world interested in a comprehensive, exceptional quality journalism program with an international broadcaster. Candidates should have journalism experience or be passionate about switching to journalism from technology/IT, economics or the sciences. DW is looking for open-minded people full of creative ideas.

The DW editorial traineeship is paid, with a gross starting salary of approx. 1,600 Euros per month. As full-time employees, DW trainees are automatically eligible for German public health insurance. As our trainees move to Germany from abroad, we assist them at every step of the visa process.
The traineeship can lead to employment in one of our departments in Bonn or Berlin.

For the bilingual DW traineeship DW is looking for:
• English native speakers with a working knowledge of German
• German native speakers with an excellent working knowledge of English

Native speakers of any other DW program language are invited to apply as well. However, very good English skills and basic knowledge of German is required.
The successful candidates will be based in Bonn and Berlin.
