Internship Roles

Audible is a worldwide leader of premium audio storytelling, including audiobooks, podcasts, drama and other audio entertainment, offering customers a rich destination to enhance their daily lives. This summer we will be welcoming six interns to our office near the Barbican in London to take part in an 8-week paid internship programme. Greater representation in our industry is important to us and to our current and future audiences, and we want to be a part of shaping the wider culture of the UK through the content we produce. We encourage applications from communities, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds currently under-represented in the audio industry.

You’ll work with the Marketing team to plan campaigns, manage experiences in our apps and websites, create imagery and copy that is beloved by customers, and analyse performance.

Key skills you may experience during your internship: Content Management systems, Targeting & Segmentation, Digital Marketing strategies, Conversion Rate Optimisation, A/B testing, Marketing analysis.

Jamie - Senior Manager, Retention & Engagement

Please tell us about your typical day.

I get to enjoy quite a varied role from deep diving into data to plotting and creating campaigns aimed to deliver the best possible customer experience.

What is your favourite thing about working at Audible?

As a product, the quality of the Audible Originals podcasts and books always astound me, especially seeing the passion and effort that goes into them first-hand. As a business, the opportunity to try something new or different, whether that be career-wise or campaign-wise is always close at hand.

Our content teams are dedicated to creating and sharing innovative and inspiring content with our listeners around the world, whether that’s producing new content in our state-of-the-art facilities at our Audible Studios or managing editorials. Our in-house publishing team is made up of passionate individuals, full of fresh ideas and innovative approaches that enable us to not only reimagine classic tales for our audience, but create new ways of storytelling too.

Key skills you may experience: assessing creative pitches, editing scripts and working with writers, budgeting, managing casting process, assisting in audible productions, quality checking audio, promotional activities, commissioning.

Lydia - Commissioning Editor

Please tell us about your typical day.

Reading submissions, editing scripts, sourcing new talent and content, meeting with writers and producers, working on budgets and schedules.

What is your favourite thing about working at Audible?

At Audible, we get to work with some of the highest profile creative talent and casts in the world. The varied interests of our members means we get to work on everything from RomComs to Horror, so it’s never boring.

What are you listening to?

Archive 81 and Car Crash.

Mariele - Senior Manager, Production & Casting

Please tell us about your typical day.

One of the best things about working in production is that no two days are the same. We work on a vast array of projects across multiple genres – so one day I could be working to hire a high profile actor and the other day in the recording studio watching someone create the sound effect of bones being crushed using a coconut, or a group of actors pretending to be market stall holders from the 14th century for an audio-drama.

What is your favourite thing about working at Audible?

First and foremost; the people. Audible is great at hiring people who are super-passionate about storytelling and really driven to always create the best content possible – so it’s a great bunch and most days feels like you’re working with friends, rather than colleagues. I also think Audible has been very generous and supportive during a hugely challenging couple of years since the pandemic, working hard to ensure that ‘Working From Home’ life is as easy as it can be; providing equipment, plenty of support and a very sensitive return to office programme.

What are you listening to?

I have an obsession of listening to Lisa Jewell thrillers while out running. They’re real ‘page turners’ and because I need to know what happens, I often run for longer than I’d planned. I’ve also been listening to Mermaid School by Lucy Courtenay and The Christmas Pig with my son, which our team produced.

Business Support

  

Our business support functions include Legal, Finance and HR—critical teams that support the smooth running of Audible UK’s operations. Our Legal team supports the business across a range of disciplines—everything from contracting, through marketing and advertising, to product launches. Our Finance team spans the spectrum of accounting, planning and analysis. And our HR team are responsible for the end-to-end experience of Audible’s people.

Key skills you may experience: Project management, contracting, recruitment, time management, data analysis, communication, research, accounting.

Rachel - Associate Corporate Counsel

Please tell us about your typical day.

It’s varied, which keeps my job interesting! My work spans different teams and can involve anything from review of Audible UK content-related contracts (for example, reviewing performer agreements for upcoming productions), and working on legal analysis for one-off projects such as Off-Mic workshops aimed at increasing diversity in the audio production sector (launching soon)! The variety of work is mentally stimulating and keeps me on my toes, which I enjoy.

What is your favourite thing about working at Audible?

I love that Audible is a standalone company with a distinct, creative culture, but that I am also part of a larger internal Amazon UK Legal function (which means I can leverage central resources and feel part of the Amazon community).

What are you listening to?
Finding Q, an Audible Original Podcast.

Bim - HR Generalist

Please tell us about your typical day.

No day in HR is this same. As is the nature of people, what I do on a day to day basis is never predictable. It may be working on a cool project like this internship, or managing the onboarding of a new starter, or managing the logistics as employees grow and move through different roles in the organisation. My role in HR is to support employees whilst on their journey with Audible, and to create an environment that enables productivity and the optimal working experience. But I don’t do this alone, I work closely with Learning & Development, and the recruitment team.

What is your favourite thing about working at Audible?

Audible is big on supporting our local communities, which is one of the things that really drew me to it in the first place. Outside of my role I have the opportunity to get involved in local initiatives (like working with access aspiration and Age UK), as well as partake in global initiatives.

What are you listening to?
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Will by Will Smith, The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives by Lola Shoneyin.
