Want to secure a paid PR internship in London? Transmission Private runs a paid PR internship programme for people who are just starting their careers. As part of the scheme, you will have the opportunity build your skills across all aspects of PR, communications, and reputation management.
As a boutique PR agency based in London, Transmission Private takes on a select number of PR interns throughout the year. Our PR internship programme is very flexible, with some interns joining us on a full-time basis over a period of 6 months while others might only join us for a few months over summer.
We accept applications throughout the year. We are also able to provide interns with an opportunity to not only join the PR team – but support on marketing, social media, and business development projects for the agency itself.
If you would like to apply for a PR agency internship, please send your CV (resume) and a short covering letter (maximum 500 words) to email@example.com.

How do I apply?
Please send you CV (resume) and a short covering letter (maximum 500 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your covering letter, take the time to explain how you would benefit from the PR internship and why you are a good fit for the role.
What do you want to see in my PR internship cover letter?
Please show us that you understand how Transmission Private is different from other PR and marketing agencies in London. In particular, demonstrate that you understand not only the types of clients that we support, but how their needs and priorities might differ from clients at other PR agencies. Otherwise, show us that you’re keen to start your career with enthusiasm and energy, and share an extended writing sample that shows how you have previously written for a public audience.
What are the hours of a PR intern?
Our standard office hours are 9am until 6pm, although we offer flexibility to interns who are balancing an internship with an ongoing course.
Is the role based in an office?
Yes. Our PR internships are office based. As a business, we believe that it’s much more difficult for people who are new to the industry to pick-up skills without having direct contact with others who are more experienced. This gives you the opportunity to ask questions quickly, see the mechanics of PR directly, and get quick and immediate feedback.
