Cosmopolitan UK has announced the launch of a competition in partnership with flatsharing website SpareRoom that will see four winners land month-long internships with the iconic publication. 

As part of the partnership, each winner will be provided with free Central London accommodation for the duration of their scholarship, and assigned to either the features, beauty, art or fashion team. They will also earn the London living wage and will be provided with a free travel pass. No previous experience or qualifications are necessary.

Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan, Farrah Storr, says: “We at Cosmopolitan believe that everyone, no matter where they live or what their background, deserves a fair chance to follow their dream career. That’s why we’ve partnered with SpareRoom to launch a competition that will give four outstanding individuals the opportunity to gain invaluable experience on our features, beauty, art and fashion teams where they will each be personally mentored by senior editors while living in central London rent-free for the whole month.”

Matt Hutchinson, SpareRoom Communications Director, says: “Renting is so expensive, particularly in London, which can mean talented people miss out on great opportunities simply because they can’t afford to take them. We’re delighted to work in partnership with Cosmopolitan to make this potentially life-changing experience open to as many people as possible and can’t wait to see the winners’ work in print.”

Applications close on 8th February 2019 before the scholarship takes place during July 2019. Find out more here.
