The Springer Nature Opening Doors Education Publishing internship, with Macmillan Education is a paid opportunity in the UK to gain experience in editorial, rights, sales and marketing in a thriving publishing department dedicated to providing resources to schools in the Caribbean.


Many groups and perspectives are currently underrepresented in the publishing industry, which is a challenge that we are actively trying to address at Springer Nature. We are seeking candidates who believe they can contribute to diversity, equity and inclusion in our organisation, in our content, or both.

The successful applicant will spend up to six months within the Caribbean Schools team, part of the Macmillan Education division of Springer Nature. If selected for this internship, you will be developing skills, experience and insight into a thriving educational publishing business across all its publishing, editorial, rights, sales and marketing functions.
