Join the OSPL Business Team for Summer 2020!

Oxford Student Publications Limited (OSPL) is the UK’s oldest student-run publishing house and is responsible for publishing the Cherwell newspaper as well as the ISIS and the Oxford Scientist magazines. As a member of our business team you will be responsible for making sales, deciding which industries to target during term time, pricing advert space, and working with editors to implement revenue-generating ideas. Given the recent pandemic the role of a robust business team is vital in ensuring that we identify and take advantage of opportunities in this unique time. 

In this fully virtual summer experience you will  learn how to negotiate deals with different businesses and sell them advertising products that suit their needs. Beyond making sales we are also keen to explore new digital platforms that can further our reach to the student audience. This is a great way to expose yourself to the business side of the media and publishing industry. Our former members have been able to leverage their experience to gain prestigious internships in finance, consulting and advertising. This training would be invaluable for aspiring editors or student journalists who want to join the OSPL board in autumn and take part in running an actual publishing company next calendar year. We will provide the necessary training to get you started.

Please complete this form by 9:00 PM on 03 June 2020.
