Communications and multimedia design intern for Night of the Night campaign

Internship Description

We have a great communication internship position available for a national campaign 'Night of the Night'. Are you looking for an internship where there is room for your input and where you can also make an impact on a better world? Then apply for our vacancy.

About us:
For 20 years, the Nature and Environment Federations have been committed to protecting nighttime darkness and raising awareness of light pollution. This year we celebrate the 20th edition of our Night of the Night campaign. To mark this milestone, we are taking a closer look at the campaign. We will set new goals for the future during a strategic session. As a result, we will (partly with an external agency) renew the corporate identity and website.

Job Description:
As a communications intern for the Night of the Night campaign, you will have the opportunity to be part of a dynamic campaign with a lot of freedom. In the Communication and Multimedia Design internship you will work as a videographer, graphic designer, editor, copywriter, social media employee, event manager, journalist, website builder, etc. In short: with all facets within modern cross-media communication. Of course, we would love to hear where your strengths are in order to tailor the internship (where possible) accordingly. This is a unique opportunity to be involved in a large-scale campaign. The Night of the Night always takes place at the end of October but most of the communication work is already done before the summer. Because we want to redevelop this existing campaign you can have a lot of influence on what the campaign will look like. If you look at the current website you will see that it is in need of a new design. This will be done by external people but of course you can participate and think along. We offer a super nice internship to see your own work (and impact) later in practice.
