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.
