Country Representative - Mozambique / Representante do País, Moçambique
Número de vagas
Descrição da função

The main focus of the role in the initial months of this contract will be on business development, so the
successful applicant will be a natural diplomat. There may also be an opportunity for the Country
Representative to become the manager or executive producer of the resulting campaign(s). For this reason
we will give equal consideration to candidates with either business development experience or experience
at a senior level in the television, radio or advertising industries. The Country Representative will work
closely with the DMI team in London, and will be in regular contact with teams in Burkina Faso and DRC.
1. Develop a thorough understanding of DMI’s methodologies and objectives. Spend a week in London for
detailed briefings and two weeks in Burkina Faso to gain hands-on experience of DMI’s approach.
2. Build strong relationships with the Ministry of Health in Mozambique and work with them as needed to
maintain their support for mass media campaigns in line with the national health promotion strategy
(this may include providing support to the Ministry on the development of a mass media strategy).
3. Build strong relationships with key health and media funders in Mozambique and the wider region
(including but not limited to bilateral funders such as DFID, DFATD and USAID, multilateral funders such
as the World Bank, UNICEF and UNFPA, commercial companies; and private foundations), understand
each funder’s priorities and processes, agree a strategy for each with DMI London, and carry out detailed
negotiations with funders’ in-country representatives so as to secure funding for media campaigns.
4. Negotiate with broadcasters (state, commercial, or community) to secure agreements to broadcast DMI
spots, programmes and concept placements, based on DMI creative and technical inputs rather than
cash payments.
5. Identify and prioritise viable projects, liaising with DMI London. Input into project design and budgeting
as needed. Provide local information to support proposal development and project design. Draft concept
notes and funding proposals where needed, in collaboration with DMI London.
6. Prepare for and then launch any funded DMI media campaign(s) in Mozambique, if needed (i.e. when
funds are secured and in the event that there is not a decision to hire a separate manager or executive
producer). Set up an office, recruit local staff, and manage all aspects of the campaign(s), including
formative research, creation and production of broadcast materials, distribution on broadcast networks,
and oversight of (or liaison with) quantitative impact evaluation surveys. Manage the country office and
any local staff, ensuring that activities and spending are in line with DMI procedures and local
regulations. Be responsible for the safety and security of local DMI staff and assets.
7. Keep DMI London regularly informed of progress, opportunities, obstacles and risks.

Please note - only applications in English will be considered

This is a unique job and no single career path will provide all the skills required. We are looking for an
outstanding, inspiring and highly credible representative. We will consider candidates from a range of
sectors including media, advertising, public health, international development, and government. We will not
consider candidates without good written and spoken Portuguese.
1. Very strong intellectual ability, as evidenced by a good degree or similar qualifications and performance
at interview. Both the media and scientific elements of this project are intellectually demanding. A
science background is not needed, but the candidate must be able to explain technical concepts clearly,
most importantly when meeting with senior contacts, but also when writing funding proposals.
2. An excellent understanding of the applications of mass media, with good strategic instincts, and an
understanding of which media strategies will work, and which will not, in a developing country context.
Ideally the candidate will have direct experience of film-making, radio production or media projects, with
some experience of media production in developing countries.
3. The ability to grasp the complex public health issues linked to DMI’s work. The candidate must be able to
engage credibly with senior health officials within governments, funders and NGOs.
4. Excellent diplomatic skills, with the ability to form productive relationships at senior levels and to bring
about effective collaboration between partners with differing agendas. Ideally, a track record of
identifying business opportunities in difficult environments and converting them into viable projects.
5. The ability to develop a rapid and solid understanding of international development funding processes,
dynamics and trends, especially at country level within an African context.
6. Significant experience of working in a developing country and of managing locally hired staff.
7. Significant management experience, ideally including practical knowledge of project design and budgets.
8. Excellent organisational and IT skills, and the ability to work well both independently and within a team.
9. Excellent written and verbal communication skills in both English and Portuguese.
