Job Opportunity at Girl Effect, Production Specialist (Tanzania)

Production Specialist (Tanzania)

Who we are

Girl Effect is an international non-profit that builds media that girls want, trust and need.

From chat-bots to chat-shows and TV dramas to tech, our content is reaching millions of girls in Africa and Asia to make choices and changes in their lives. Igniting their confidence to act differently at a time that can define their future.

We create safe spaces for girls, sharing facts, and answering questions about health, nutrition, education, relationships and so much more. And we use innovative technology so we can reach girls at scale. We arm girls with the skills to negotiate and redefine what they are told is possible, so every girl can choose to be in control of her body, her health, her learning and livelihood.

When a girl unlocks her power to make different choices that change her life, it inspires others to do so too. She starts a ripple effect that impacts her family, her community, her country. That’s the Girl Effect.

The brand

Tujibebe is a mobile-first digital brand that provides young Tanzanian girls with the information and the inspiration they need to make choices about their health, learning and livelihood- from setting up a small business and saving for the future, to speaking up about body concerns and visiting a health centre.

Meaning “let’s lift ourselves up, together” in Swahili, Tujibebe brings young people together to overcome life’s challenges and realise their ambitions.

Tujibebe’s content is accessible online whether girls own or borrow a mobile phone – connecting with girls via a radio drama, radio chat show, interactive audio stories, and digital channels. Our Interactive Voice Response (IVR) line features inspirational stories and advice from female entrepreneurs, top tips and quizzes – girls can call for free using Tanzania’s most extensive network provider, Vodacom.

We are searching for a highly organized thinker and communicator who has an eye for detail to join our team. In this position, you will be responsible for managing Tujibebe’s projects, ensuring they are running efficiently and delivering on committed objectives.

Context of the role

This is a key role within our creative department and extends from the initial goal setting for projects and planning phases all the way through to project completion. This includes establishing budgets, estimating necessary resources, and plotting a timeline for completion.

Your central goal is to ensure Tujibebe’s creative team is fully supported so they continue to produce quality content aligned with the brand values and intended social and behavioral outcomes. In doing so, you will play an integral part in increasing the brand’s reach, loyalty, and impact.

Your duties will include your involvement in leading campaigns and managing deadlines and workflows. Our ideal candidate is someone with experience in project management, marketing preferably in a creative context (advertising agency/production studio/marketing team). In addition to being an outstanding communicator, you must also demonstrate excellent time management, interpersonal and analytical skills, with an eye for detail.
