Digital Communications Intern Needed for Summer 2023 on Governors Island, NYC

Governors Island is a popular year-round destination located in the middle of New York Harbor. For almost two centuries, the Island was closed to the public, operating as a military base for the U.S. Army and, later, the Coast Guard. Today, an award-winning park is complemented by dozens of unique historic buildings, educational and cultural facilities, a rich arts and culture program, and a 22-acre National Monument managed by the National Park Service. Looking ahead, the Island is envisioned to be further activated as a resource for all of New York City, with expanded educational, nonprofit, and commercial facilities.

POSITION: Digital Communications Intern for summer 2023

The Trust for Governors Island seeks a Digital Communications Intern for summer 2023. Working closely with the entire Public Affairs team, which oversees communications, marketing, community engagement, and public programming for Governors Island, the Digital Communications Intern will support efforts to engage a diverse audience of New Yorkers during the Island’s busiest season. This is an exciting opportunity to work in one of New York City’s most dynamic public places and learn about nonprofit marketing and communications, community relations, public affairs, and placemaking.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

• Build and execute content to drive engagement across Governors Island’s social and digital marketing channels.
• Assist with collecting and analyzing social and other digital analytics to inform content strategy and development.
• Support the Public Affairs team in promoting Governors Island as an accessible and dynamic destination, including promoting its park, recreational activities, public programs, art installations, and food and beverage operators.
• Support staff with needs related to a wide variety of events and special activities and programs.
• Special projects as needed.

Applicants should be available to work in-person throughout the summer and should expect a start date in late May or early June.

QUALIFICATIONS

Education:
• High school graduate or equivalent currently enrolled in a bachelor’s, associate, or certificate program with a focus on marketing, communications, journalism, public relations, urban planning, graphic design, or related fields.
• Senior Manager also considers non-traditional interns who are looking to re-enter the workforce or change careers; this may include those who have previously graduated from college.

Experience:
• Experience and success developing, creating, and executing engaging content for social media, email campaigns, and websites in a nonprofit or similar setting.
• Passion and interest in public space, New York City parks, climate justice, public art, and/or cultural programming.

Skills and Abilities:
• Detail-oriented with strong organizational skills and demonstrated ability to work both independently and collaboratively, multi-task, set priorities, and meet deadlines.
• Excellent communication skills—you’re a creative storyteller who can get audiences excited, break down complex ideas into engaging and easily digestible content, and tailor messaging based on audience and media type.
• Familiarity with developing content (in a professional or personal capacity) for social platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, and LinkedIn.
• Familiarity with web management and email marketing tools, Adobe Creative Suite, and/or Canva a plus.
