Content Researcher, Niambie

About BBC Media Action:
BBC Media Action uses media to reduce poverty and support people to understand their rights in developing countries. To achieve this, we partner with civil society, local media and governments to produce creative programmes in multi-media formats, based on robust research, which inform and engage audiences around key development issues.

BBC Media Action delivers a portfolio of media projects in Tanzania. It seeks to ensure that existing projects are delivered to time, to budget and to the highest standards in accordance with BBC editorial values.

Our work is built on insights from research and engagement with communities and focuses on three key themes: governance and human rights, health and resilience.

BBC Media Action has been working in Tanzania since 2009. One of our biggest projects is Niambie - a multimedia intervention connecting young people from across Tanzania to understand, discuss and influence decisions about issues affecting their lives.

Niambie provides a unique space in the national media for young people to discuss important issues on their own terms and in their own language. It engages and informs young people from across Tanzania, creating a platform for them to talk to their leaders. Evidence shows that Niambie contributes to increased self-efficacy among young people and women and increased ability to engage in discussions and take action on issues that matter to them.

The ideal candidate will have experience of working as a content researcher for radio, multimedia production and/or development organisations.
