The Rutgers University Foundation (RUF) and Rutgers University Alumni Association (RUAA) part-time videographer-photographer will capture stories about university-wide research, fundraising, student life, programs, and RUAA and RUF events for a variety of alumni and donor audiences at events and across Rutgers’ digital platforms and channels. Working closely with the Multimedia Designer on assignment; with the Visual Identity, Marketing, Editorial, and Project Management teams; and in a self-motivated capacity, the videographer-photographer will oversee all facets of video and photo capturing as well as some post-production. This work will include concept and story development, gathering video and audio footage, editing, and archiving of branded, short-form and long-form videos used primarily on the web and on social media.
The videographer-photographer will collaborate with fellow members of the Communications team on storyboards for video projects and on creating channel/medium-specific versions of videos, as well as on choosing photo selects for print and layout pieces. He or she will maintain the RUAA’s Flickr account and organize the department’s photo library. This position will collaborate with other still photographers and videographers around the university on visual storytelling efforts and serve as a still photographer or second-shooter when needed for school or unit events. Frequent travel to Rutgers locations—primarily in New Brunswick—will be expected. Occasional travel to Rutgers--Newark, Rutgers--Camden, and elsewhere on assignment will be required on an as-needed basis.
Created in 1973, the Rutgers University Foundation advances Rutgers' pursuit of excellence in education, research, and public service. The Foundation provides the bridge between donors and the schools, programs, faculty, and students that make up the University. The Foundation helps to match caring people with satisfying and meaningful opportunities to make gifts that have an impact on Rutgers. Founded in 1766, Rutgers is the eighth oldest institution of higher education in the nation. Today, Rutgers, a member of the Association of American Universities, is New Jersey's premier public research institution and flagship state university. More than 100 majors offer students vast opportunities. On July 1, 2014, Rutgers University joined The Big Ten Conference of world-class universities whose member institutions share a common mission of research, graduate, professional and undergraduate teaching and public service. The Foundation is a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organization. Our sole mission is to support Rutgers University.
