Opportunity: Communications Intern

Cohear is a community engagement and strategy company. We believe living an issue every day makes someone an expert, and that decision makers need to access and learn from that expertise to make better, more effective decisions.

Cohear is seeking an intern to join our team for the spring of 2022. This position will work side-by-side with Cohear staff to draft communications materials based on community focus groups, write policy memos, and provide support and assistance to our community organizing and communications work. This position will be paid $15/hr, and requires a minimum of a 12-week commitment. This position will take place in a primarily remote fashion, though occasional in-person participation in Cincinnati or Columbus will be expected. Interns will be expected to work 10-15 hours per week, with the option to work more if scheduling allows.

Activities Include:

  • Transcribing Cohear focus groups

  • Drafting insights summaries after each Cohear focus group

  • Writing policy and research memos

  • Providing operations and administrative assistance for our organizing and outreach efforts

  • Coordinating logistics for digital and potential in-person focus groups (the latter only as it is safe to do so)

  • Assisting other staff as needed

Preferred Skills:

  • Clear, effective writing

  • Commitment to making positive change at the local level

  • Proven ability to handle multiple projects simultaneously

  • Eagerness to have flexible day-to-day responsibilities, and a strong capacity to adapt to new projects and opportunities

  • Research and information synthesis skills

Cohear seeks interns on an equal opportunity basis. We are committed to diversity, and have the highest commitment to obtaining and retaining a diverse team. We believe everyone has the right to work in an environment free from discrimination as is consistent with our commitment to diversity, respect, and inclusion.
