Executive Producer and Trainer, Radio, Development Media International (DMI)


Development Media International (DMI) is a London-based organisation which uses mass media campaigns to promote healthy behaviours in developing countries (
DMI has launched the world’s first scientific trial to examine how many lives can be saved using mass media alone. This major, 4-year project will take place in Burkina Faso, West Africa, in collaboration with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). Our model predicts that we will prevent 20% of all child deaths. At the end of the project, the producer will know precisely how many lives they have saved.

The media outputs of the campaign will be based on 60-second radio spots (PSAs1) and 2 hour radio phone-in programmes, all to be produced in local languages and based on extensive research. Some 600+ spots and 200+ phone-in programmes will be produced over 30 months. We are now looking for an outstanding French-speaking radio executive to join the team in Burkina Faso in helping recruit, lead and train the locally-hired creative team.

We are looking for a producer from either the broadcasting or advertising sectors. The ideal applicant would ideally be capable of producing both spots and phone-ins although we will consider specialists in either skill. This is a managerial position so experience and seniority will be as important as creativity.
