Full Job Description
How would you like to get first-hand experience at one of the world’s top Nordic translation companies? We’re Sandberg – a leading international language service provider – and we’re excited to be offering a 3-month Norwegian translation internship.
Take advantage of this unique opportunity to live and work in the UK. If you arrive before the end of 2020, it’s just as easy as moving to any EU country: no visa required. We’re a company of international, outward-looking professionals – and it helps that our founder is a Dane and our managing director a Finn.
