Communications Department Fellowship
The Communications Department seeks an individual to serve as the Communications Fellow and work on projects that involve expanding its communications reach, assisting in branding and storytelling initiatives, and developing key policy/external affairs campaigns. The Alliance is charged with cultivating Times Square’s public image to reflect its key values: diversity, dynamism, distinctiveness, and desirability. The Communications Department works to promote this image through traditional and new media, telling stories about Times Square’s unique assets, its economic strength, and its role as a cultural hub in New York City. The Department also works with the Executive and Planning, Policy & Design Departments to craft and implement the Alliance’s external affairs agenda.
Policy, Planning and Design Department Fellowship
The Policy, Planning and Design (PPD) team seeks an individual to serve as the Policy & Research Fellow and work on projects involving economic development, research, community relations, and capital projects. The Alliance’s strategic priorities in the realm of public policy, planning, and design are to make the physical environment of Times Square more appealing and distinctive, to manage growth and economic development by encouraging unique businesses and retailers to locate in Times Square and to collect, analyze and disseminate data regarding pedestrian and vehicular mobility and economic activity.
Events & Programming Department Fellowship
The Events & Programming Department seeks an individual to serve as the Events & Programming Fellow and work on projects that involve developing concepts for events, executing event activation, and managing relationships with event partners and sponsors. The Alliance actively works to make Times Square a destination through various programming initiatives, ranging from traditional events like the annual New Year’s Eve celebration to new and growing events like those produced by Times Square Arts, the Alliance’s public art program. One key objective of the Alliance’s programming is to draw people to the neighborhood and its businesses throughout the year. Another is to affirm Times Square’s uniquely urban profile – a place where people can come to find the surprising and unexpected, and to experience the programs and events that make New York distinct. The Events & Programming Department works to “choreograph the chaos” of Times Square.
