    Creative Lead Consultant

    Context of the Role

    • Girl Effect has begun a co-design process that draws on girls’ lived experiences, particularly their journeys to access SRH services and products, and harnesses their creativity and determination. The process is also designed to equip girls with the skills and tools needed to sit at the table with donors, providers, and tech experts to build the tools and services they want. 
    • We are looking for someone to lead the design and delivery of content, products, and branded experiences for adolescent girls and young women in Kenya while collaborating with a team of agencies, designers, content creators and influencers, technologists, experience designers, event managers and producers in Kenya’s ever-evolving media landscape to deliver a brand experience that young people in Kenya want, love and need.

    • Oversee brand, content, and product creation process - working with in-house and outsourced technical experts and creators to build the brand, create scripts, casting ideas, frameworks, and treatment designs.
    • Manage relationships with external content creators and  producers 
    • Actively problem-solving and fire-fighting on production timelines, conflicting priorities,  and external factors - ensuring Girl Effect processes are followed and streamlined.
