We are one of the world’s leading media organisations – home to some of the most creative minds on the planet. But it takes all kinds of people doing all kinds of jobs to get our programmes on air and online. Different people with diverse outlooks, ideas and experiences, all working together under one roof in Camden.
We know how hard it is to crack the industry and so we want to help you get your big Break into media! No matter who you are, regardless of culture, nationality, educational background, religion, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, gender, race or age etc. we value difference and encourage you to come and enrich our mix.
That’s why we’ve created Viacom BREAKS, comprising of Work Experience placements, Internships and Apprenticeships, so keep on reading to hear more about these great opportunities and how you can join us!
This year we held our first ever Viacom BREAKS careers fair, so check out the video below:

Here's what some of our current Interns had to say about their experiences:
As part of our internship launch, we've also challenged our Leadership team and our Interns to swap roles. May the best job win!
We also have amazing 15 month, paid apprenticeship opportunities for proactive, talented & ambitious individuals. Our exciting apprenticeships are a platform for helping talented individuals with a passion for the media industry springboard their career. We want to provide you with valuable hands-on experience, supported by educational media-specific units…all whilst getting paid!
Apprentices will gain experience across a huge range of projects, and will need to show a high level of enthusiasm and positivity throughout. Whether you’re pitching editorial ideas in the daily team meeting or creating funny galleries for the website, you’ll need to be driven by the desire to make the most out of every experience.
Our Apprentices will work across teams, from MTV Digital & Comedy Central Digital to Milkshake and MTV Talent and Music. You will learn how everything works, what everyone does, and how it all fits into the bigger picture of Viacom International Media Networks. You'll also get the chance to study towards a Junior Content Producer NVQ (Level 3).
We’re looking for self-starters – people who are ready to grab this experience with both hands and make the very most of it. Don’t worry if you’ve not worked in, or studied, Media before, we’re looking for passionate, hungry and talented individuals who are looking to kick start their career in the industry.
Applications will open in the late summer 2018. We’ll be holding assessment centres in early Autumn with a view to welcoming our new Apprentices in November. Don’t miss out, keep your eyes peeled on our social media pages for more information!
Unfortunately, we cannot accept applications from graduates for these roles, if you are a graduate take a look at our Internship and Work Experience opportunities instead.
Thank you for applying for our Work Experience programme. Applications are now closed. We will reopen for applications again in September 2018. Keep an eye on this page and on our social media for updates!
Would you love to get into media but keep getting told you need experience? It can feel impossible to get your foot in the door, particularly if you don’t have any connections within the industry. Maybe you have a particular skill but are unsure of how it fits in to the workplace. That’s why we want to help you get your big break! No matter your age, education or background, we will be offering over 60 work experience opportunities a year to spend 4 days with us here at Viacom HQ. During that time, you will get to network and build connections, understand our brands and content, and gain an insight into what it’s like to work in a global media organisation.
Our Work Experience programme will help you gain an insight into the business areas that make us one of the world's leading entertainment companies. To really get to grips with the role and our business, you will be matched with a buddy who will support you throughout your placement. Alongside completing role-relevant tasks, you will also be able to attend an employability workshop run by our HR team to help you to finish the placement in good stead for your future career!
We are offering work experience placements within all of our brands and departments across the company. Take a look at the list below to see where your interests lie, then apply for the one you feel is the best match for you. We know that you might not have any experience so there is no need to upload a CV in your application. If you are selected, we will be in touch to provide you with all the details you will need for your placement. We will provide you with an oyster card that you can keep, containing £10 of credit for each of the four days, as well as a £5 voucher per day to spend in our lovely office café.
Please note, unfortunately due to high volumes of applications we aren’t able to get back to you individually with feedback on your application.
