Ethiopia: Country Director, Ethiopia Job Vacancy in Ethiopia

Organization: BBC Media Action
Country: Ethiopia
Closing date: 28 Feb 2018

Job Introduction

BBC Media Action is the BBC’s international development charity, which uses media and communications to help reduce poverty and support people to understand and claim their rights. We do this through partnering with civil society, media and others to produce creative programmes and other outputs which inform and engage audiences on key development issues. We also strengthen the media sector through building professional capacity and infrastructure and our focus is on health, governance and rights, and resilience and humanitarian response. As Country Director, Ethiopia, you’ll lead and expand on our valuable work in the country.

The BBC is committed to redeploying employees seeking suitable alternative employment within the BBC for different reasons and they will be given priority consideration ahead of other applicants. Priority consideration means for those employees seeking redeployment their application will be considered alongside anyone else at risk of redundancy, prior to any individuals being considered who are not at risk.

Role Responsibility

You’ll be at the heart of all we do in Ethiopia, leading on developing new projects, securing funds for these projects, and delivering our current work to a high standard, on time and within budget. You’ll be managing in-country teams and ensuring the quality and cohesion of our project outputs. You’ll also be responsible for the financial management of projects and reporting on editorial and operational progress to London headquarters and to project donors. As such, you’ll engage with a range of stakeholders and build key partnerships with funding agencies, government bodies, broadcasters, NGOs, academic institutions, international development agencies and others. You’ll be managing the security of all staff, international and national, in Addis Ababa and around the country. Additionally, you’ll have a real input into the development and implementation of our Country Strategy for Ethiopia, contributing to the overall development and strategy of the wider Africa programme.

The Ideal Candidate

You’ll bring substantial management experience, ideally in a media and/or international development setting, experience of managing country operations overseas alongside a proven ability to deliver complex projects within deadline and budget. Within this, you'll show significant experience in managing large scale annual budgets of no less than £2million. Supporting these skills will be your strong understanding of international development, and managing programmes in an insecure environment. As such, you’ll know how we can use the media for development goals and will combine this understanding with a strong track record of developing proposals and raising funds from donor agencies.
