(I'm a developer at The Guardian. Happy for you to contact me for any questions about the process or job! [email protected])
The Guardian Digital Fellowship is an opportunity for developers who are in the early stages of their careers to join the Digital department. If you love coding and digital media then you can apply to the Fellowship irrespective of your background or experience. Commercial experience or a background in computer science is not a requirement for this role: yearly intakes of developers are selected based on the ability and ideas they demonstrate during the recruitment process. Assessment is around demonstrating your practical skills and sharing your experiences. We’re looking for people who want to contribute to the Guardian’s future.
The Fellowship is a 12 month scheme that offers you an opportunity to ramp up to working as a fully-fledged developer in a structured manner, alongside a cohort of Fellows. It is not a quick start programme or a training scheme. As a Fellow you'll be expected to jump in and work as part of a team while being provided with the support and learning to acquire the skills of a developer. Fellows join our digital team which is responsible for creating, developing, managing and maintaining the Guardian's digital products. We work with editorial and commercial teams as well as external partners.
We foster an environment in which you can learn and develop your career. Fellows will be encouraged to rotate teams halfway through the scheme. The rotation will provide the opportunity to gain experience with different technologies and meet different people within the business. It’s a great way to see how much you’ve learnt in the first six months and what you want to build on in your new team.
