Description

Freedman Consulting, LLC: Projects and Events Manager, Bloomberg Cities Insights Unit 

New York City, NY* 

 

Freedman Consulting, LLC, a mission-driven consulting firm, seeks a skilled self-starter with a strong ability to manage complex, multi-faceted projects and events for the Bloomberg Cities Insights Unit (IU) as its Projects and Events Manager. 


The Projects and Events Manager will join a dedicated unit of content development and research professionals working in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Government Innovation (GI) team to: 

  • Uncover, distill, and publish intelligence that keeps the team and its work at the forefront of what’s happening in cities; and,
  • Inspire local leaders to adopt new, effective ways of working. 

The Insights Unit is part of a firm of 50-plus professionals that offers strategic consulting services to foundations, nonprofit organizations, and public interest coalitions, partnering with many of the nation’s leading philanthropic institutions.


The Projects and Events Manager’s primary focus will be to leverage the research and content expertise of the Insights Unit in support of multiple GI projects and events, with a particular emphasis on Bloomberg CityLab—an annual summit that brings together global mayors alongside prominent city innovators and urban experts to discuss and discover replicable solutions to pressing issues. The Projects and Events Manager will work closely with Bloomberg Philanthropies and other partners to support the design, development, and facilitation of expert roundtables, workshops, partner meetings, and other initiatives that uncover new insights and translate them into actionable strategies that can be integrated across GI's programmatic initiatives.

 

The Projects and Events Manager should be skilled at mapping out project needs, tracking progress, and guiding execution—all in a fast-paced environment. They should bring interest and enthusiasm in the field of public-sector innovation and be prepared to work across a broad range of initiatives, often in a client-facing capacity, and will be responsible for managing the timely delivery of products. 

 

Key Responsibilities

Primary responsibilities for the Projects and Events Manager include:

  • Managing the planning and execution of events including, but not limited to, convenings, symposiums, virtual meetings, and roundtables 
  • Collaborating with internal and external stakeholders including program leads, communications partners, and on-the-ground logistics staff to ensure events meet strategic goals
  • Defining and mapping needs, timelines, and deliverables for select projects and events, with a particular focus on CityLab
  • Project managing collateral development—in coordination with graphic design support—including presentations, handouts, and other materials
  • Tracking progress and ensuring the timely completion of event planning and execution of tasks and priorities
  • Capturing event highlights through summaries, memos, and other documentation
  • Supporting the design, tracking, and delivery of miscellaneous content and research projects as needed

 

Qualifications 

 The ideal candidate will have:

  •  At least five years of related professional experience including project management, event management, and/or logistics coordination related experience;
  • A bachelor’s degree in a related field including government, political science, or public policy is preferred;
  • Familiarity with project management methodologies (e.g., agile, scrum, waterfall, etc.) and/or tools (e.g., Asana, Basecamp, Trello, Jira, etc.);
  • Experience leading projects or events in a relevant field (e.g., government, philanthropy, etc.);
  • Proven ability to plan, prioritize, track, and meet deadlines for multiple projects in a fast-paced environment;
  • Familiarity with translating complex information into formats that are clear and digestible;
  • Resourcefulness in identifying and navigating obstacles, flexibility to manage change, creativity, attention to detail, and the ability to approach complex issues critically and strategically.
