Crisis Group is offering an excellent learning opportunity to develop short and social video skills, learn how to match that with conflict prevention strategies and see how a policy organisation develops its communications strategies with relation to all kinds of audio-visual media. In this volunteer internship you will also be observing, contributing and providing feedback to our processes as a member of the communications team. This is a volunteer position for 6-months starting in September 2021.
We offer you learning on the job through:
Help develop multimedia and video content for Crisis Group’s website and social media,
Assist with editing videos using primarily Adobe Premiere Pro and other tools such as Adobe After Effects and Adobe Audition;
Assist during interview recordings with Crisis Group’s analysts;
Assist with researching, writing and editing of scripts, storyboards and story synopsis;
Update video content on Crisis Group’s website and social media;
Engage professionally with social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter;
Monitor developments in online media;
Monitor the success of video efforts using YouTube analytics and other tools, and
Provide general support to the communications team.
This volunteer position will suit anyone interested in acquiring a practical overview of a wide range of countries in conflict, developing concise videographic skills, and learning how a policy organisation develops its communications strategies. Candidates will need good English, good video editing skills (knowledge of Adobe Premiere Pro and other Adobe Creative Suite tools is a must) and to enjoy working in a fast-paced, multinational team. The ideal intern will already be familiar with video editing in a professional setting, have interest in conflict prevention and ability to work well in a diverse team. Authorisation to work in Belgium is required.
Our communications team is based in Brussels and it would be great to have a volunteer intern who is already in Belgium. However, we are open to considering remote work.
If interested, please apply by 31 July 2021.
