sharing in governance of extractive industries
NRGI seeks a full-time Media Capacity Development Associate preferably to be based in Accra, Ghana.
Reporting to the Program Officer for Media Capacity Development, the Program Associate will provide administrative and programmatic support to the management and implementation of media project activities with primary, but not exclusive, focus on programming in selected Anglophone African countries. These include Ghana, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Uganda.
Country-level activities are primarily implemented by local partners, with guidance and support from NRGI. Working in tandem with the Program Officer, the Associate will ensure close coordination with partners to harmonize planning and monitor activities against agreed work plans and budgets. He/she will support efforts to evaluate progress as well as to document and facilitate the sharing of lessons, experiences, and practices across countries.
The media program is designed to be responsive to the changing and emerging needs of and challenges facing journalists, the media industry, and the extractive sector. The position will therefore require familiarity with the African media landscape and competence in basic research and analytical skills to be able to discern and document trends in media coverage of oil, gas and minerals and extractive journalism generally.
