Journalism Internship Programme, Discover Germany

 

We are always on the lookout for bright journalism and communications interns to join our editorial team in London on a full-time basis.

About our internship programme
As an intern with Discover Germany, you get the opportunity to gain valuable writing experience and learn more about what it is like to work as part of an editorial team in a busy central London office.

Your weekly tasks will consist of writing features for the magazine in question as well as working with the content management of the magazine’s website and possibly some social media work.

During your internship you can expect to learn more about the various topics covered by the magazine and to improve your written English and storytelling skills. Naturally, you will also learn about the social aspects of working in an office as part of a team of editorial, design and sales staff.

Scan Group interns report to the Editor of the relevant magazine and also receive training and feedback from the Executive Editor.

About us:
Scan Group publishes three monthly titles (Scan Magazine, Discover Germany and Discover Benelux) which can be described as unique English-language showcases for their respective regions. The magazines appeal to all those who have a relationship with or a connection to these countries – be it through family, business, tourism, migration or investment.

In addition to our growing fanbase of ex-pats and valued business associates, our magazines are also for all the non-native speakers of the respective local languages, who simply love these regions and their outputs. Our magazines highlight the vibrant cultures and lifestyles which flourish abundantly all over the globe.

We prefer interns to stay for a period of four months or more, but we are flexible as long as interns can commit to a minimum of three months and more than happy to work with interns for longer periods as well.

This is an unpaid internship, but daily travel expenses within London are covered.
