ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN FINANCE BOARD
The New York City campaign Finance Board is a nonpartisan, independent city agency that enhances the role of New York City residents in elections. We are dedicated to making our local democracy more open, transparent, and equitable. We eliminate barriers to participation by providing access to the information and resources New Yorkers need to vote or run for office and reduce the corrupting influence of money in politics by enhancing the impact of New Yorkers’ small-dollar contributions. You would be working with a staff and leadership that is mission driven and committed to continuous improvement for the staff and the public. We provide flexible work hours and environment.
ABOUT THE UNIT/DEPARTMENT
The Public Affairs division promotes the agency’s key role in equipping all candidates and voters to power a fairer and more open democracy in New York City. We engage New Yorkers, inform them about elections, and boost their civic participation in the democratic process.
Within Public Affairs, the Marketing & Digital Communications unit is responsible for the agency’s NYC Votes brand and our direct-to-voter communications, including our websites, mass email and text communications, social media, citywide advertising campaigns, and the Voter Guide posted online and mailed to over 5 million registered voters. Our Content, Design, and Production teams work together to ensure that our materials are accessible and relevant to all New Yorkers—especially underrepresented communities.
The New York City Campaign Finance Board seeks a Multimedia Content Creator to produce multimedia content, including videos (horizontal and vertical), gifs, and other dynamic assets for NYC Votes’ website, social media, and other digital marketing channels.
This role will create dynamic voter-facing content for the agency’s NYC Votes initiative, designed to reach and engage large and diverse audiences, primarily New York voters and potential voters. The position reports to the Content Strategy Manager and works closely with colleagues throughout the division, including team members in content, design, production, and outreach, as well as external vendors, creators, and partners. The Multimedia Content Creator will play a critical role in helping the agency and the city of New York increase voter participation, with a particular focus on increasing turnout in youth and immigrant communities in upcoming elections.

- Collaborate with outside vendors, creators, and partners to review and develop content that expands our reach and engages new audiences.
- Baccalaureate degree from an accredited college, or the equivalent combination of education and experience.

- Demonstrated ability to rapidly learn and use digital communication platforms effectively; current, in-depth knowledge of digital marketing platforms and best practices, particularly on social media, strongly preferred
