    Role Responsibility

    As a Digital Journalist, you’ll play a pivotal role in meeting the needs of BBC Monitoring’s users by identifying news and key insights based on the monitoring of vernacular sources - TV, radio, newspapers and social media - across Africa.  You will produce engaging content in English and cover many news stories, including breaking news.  You will work a shift pattern, feed into the global news agenda, acting as a point of reference on Sub-Saharan Africa. 

    You'll use a variety of tools and techniques to mine the media for story ideas, identify emerging trends and narratives and contribute to advance planning for coverage of key events.

    The Ideal Candidate

    You'll have experience as a journalist and excellent writing skills in idiomatic English. You’ll be able to record accurately, to report impartially, to provide context as necessary and to ensure all output is consistent with the BBC’s editorial guidelines.  You’ll have a thorough understanding of Africa’s media environment and a good knowledge of the political, cultural, religious and economic factors significant in the region.  You’ll be able to track breaking news and emerging trends in social media.

    You are willing and able to embrace new ways of working,  to continually develop yourself and others around you and to actively seek feedback. You have good inter-personal communication skills and can work collaboratively with team members and with other parts of the BBC.

    You need to be an excellent English-language editor – in which case a desirable language (listed as follows) would be an advantage: Swahili, Arabic, Oromo, Tigrinya, Amharic and any other language dominant in Africa’s media scene.

    Package Description

    Contract: Continuing

    Location: BBC Offices, Nairobi, Kenya

    Local terms and conditions apply

    Any offer of employment with the BBC will be conditional upon you having the right to work in Kenya.
