The Aziz Foundation is happy to announce a Fellowship at The Bureau of Investigative Journalism (TBIJ) aimed at training early career reporters from a Muslim background interested in learning more about investigative journalism.
As part of its commitment to increase the representation of British Muslims within journalism, the Foundation works to provide internships to help British Muslims gain the skills, knowledge and expertise required to secure employment as journalists. By working with a number of organisations, the Foundation hopes to improve access and representation for Muslim communities in traditionally underrepresented sectors.
The Fellow will gain first-hand experience working on investigations and can expect to play a meaningful role in the reporting process. As well as working across various reporting areas, the Fellow will get the opportunity to interview experts, conduct research, write briefs and draft FOIs. A demonstrable commitment to a career in journalism and a desire to work for a newsroom focused on journalism that drives positive change is necessary for the role.
The deadline to apply for this internship is 17 October 2022. The internship is scheduled to run from 30 January 2023 and the successful candidate will be based in the London office.
The Bureau is an independent, not-for-profit organisation which seeks to hold power to account. It believes that investigative journalism plays a key role in building a more just society.
The Fellowship represents an excellent opportunity for a British Muslim who is excited by the prospect of working in a collaborative newsroom with a focus on ground-breaking investigative journalism that drives impact and positive change.
