Lambda Legal’s Communications Department based in New York City seeks a multimedia intern to assist with various video, photography, and digital communications projects. This is an opportunity for a highly motivated undergraduate student to gain hands-on experience at a national nonprofit organization specializing in LGBTQ and HIV civil rights law.

Responsibilities

The intern will assist Lambda Legal’s digital team with a variety of tasks, and will have ample opportunity for creative input. The intern will have the opportunity to contribute to strategic decisions and acquire experience with the creative and managerial aspects of nonprofit digital communications. The intern may be responsible for some or all of the following:

  • Image and video research and cataloging.

  • Logging and transcribing video interviews.

  • Assist on video shoots, as needed.

  • Assisting with social media, metrics, and web projects.

  • Researching and authoring blog posts and emails.

  • Work on digital marketing campaigns.

  • And more!

The intern will have the opportunity to acquire real world experience with both the creative and managerial aspects of nonprofit digital communications. The ideal intern will be self-directed and motivated to develop their own projects as the internship progresses.

Applicants must be able to work two to three days a week at Lambda Legal’s office, located at 120 Wall Street. Applicants should be available about 10-15 hours a week.

Qualifications

We are seeking a detail-oriented and well-organized candidate with excellent writing skills and an interest in digital communications, marketing, design, video/film production, and photo editing. Experience with video editing and Adobe Creative Suite is a plus. Basic HTML knowledge is a plus. A familiarity with issues that are important to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and people with HIV is preferred, but not necessary. Interns should be comfortable working independently and as part of a team and be capable of handling confidential information in a secure and professional manner.
