Min. Experience: Mid Level


100 Resilient Cities – Pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation (100RC) is a new organization dedicated to helping cities to be better prepared for and quickly rebound from 21st century shocks and stresses. 100 Resilient Cities has selected and is working with 100 member cities from around the globe for whom it provides four kinds of value, to start: 1) Financial and other support for putting in place a new city resilience leader, a Chief Resilience Officer; 2) Support for development of a robust resilience strategy; 3) Management of a peer-to-peer network of member cities who can learn from and help each other; and 4) Connecting member cities to curated solutions of services provided by Platform Partners who can help them to implement their resilience strategies. 100RC seeks to increase awareness of the importance of resilience thinking, to catalyze a new community of urban resilience practitioners and spur the growth of a robust ecosystem of resilience-focused solutions and solution providers.



The 100 Resilient Cities Communications team is seeking a Digital Design Manager with a strong background in digital publishing and production of print and web-based design.

A key aspect of this role will be to lead creative production and design for city Resilience Strategies and help communicate complex and detailed plans through visually engaging and user-friendly collateral, in partnership with 100RC’s in-house strategy unit and our member cities.

Working with the Head of Digital Strategy, the Digital Design Manager will also produce visual assets for 100RC digital properties, including social media graphics and website infographics, to help tell the story of our work digitally.

This is an ideal opportunity to work with a global team on work that is international in scope. Communicating resilience and the work that cities are doing is a critical part of our work and you will play a key role in shaping how we do it.
