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.

The Campaign Finance Board is a nonpartisan, independent city agency that empowers New Yorkers to make a greater impact on their elections.
The New York City Campaign Finance Board (CFB) administers one of the strongest, most effective campaign finance systems in the country. NYC’s matching funds program amplifies the voice of average New Yorkers in city elections by matching their small contributions with public funds. By increasing the value of small-dollar contributions, the program reduces the possibility and perception of corruption from large contributions and unlimited campaign spending, and encourages citizens from all walks of life to run for office. Through its rigorous oversight and enforcement efforts, the CFB holds candidates accountable for using public funds responsibly.
The CFB publishes detailed public information about money raised and spent in city elections by candidates and independent spenders, bringing greater transparency to the democratic process. Its NYC Votes campaign engages and educates voters through community outreach, the Voter Guide, and Debate Program, empowering New Yorkers to make informed choices at the polls. In addition, the CFB seeks to improve the voter experience by advocating for legislative changes to the registration and voting process.
