Wat we bieden
Working at RNW Media is much more than a job. In addition to a competitive salary and benefits, you support young people to drive social change. You also become part of a young and multi-cultural team of highly skilled professionals. We are a flexible project-based centre of expertise where you work in multidisciplinary teams. We have an informal and flexible work structure that emphasises wellbeing as much as it does quality of work.
At RNW Media we have a competitive Compensation & Benefits package. This job is graded in salary scale 8 ( € 3.381 – € 4.795,02). Your salary will be dependent on experience and expertise. We offer a one year contract, subject to renewal.
As RNW Media, we are committed to reflecting the young people for whom we work. We aim to build as diverse a team as possible, whether it be in relation to gender, ethnicity, sexual identity or age. People originally from the regions where we work, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America are particularly welcome to apply.
We are an international organisation based in the Netherlands. We build digital communities for social change.
We create online platforms for which we design content, engagement and moderation strategies.
World wide local teams
The topics we cover reflect young people’s needs in relation to love, sex and relationships and their hopes and ambitions for their societies. Local teams of media-makers manage our digital communities. In turn, they build and coordinate networks of young people who produce content to engage the wider community across our thematic areas.
We work in 12 countries. In Sub-Saharan Africa we are active in Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Mali, Nigeria, and Uganda. In the Middle East and North Africa, we have platforms in Egypt, Libya and Yemen. In Asia, we work in India and China. In Latin America, we work in Mexico through our global Love Matters network and brand.
Emphasis on sustainability
We want the platforms we launch to be independent and locally owned long after grant cycles end. Hence, from the beginning of any project, we plan how platforms are going to stand on their own two feet. We honed our approach over 2017 after various platforms no longer fit the new organisational strategy. The hard work paid off and these platforms are flourishing.
Using innovative ways of delivering content—drones and 360° videos—the El Toque blog site addresses topics the Cuban government’s media side-lines. El Toque is now increasingly being seen as a reliable, independent source of information. Read more about El Toque and sustainability here.

What’s Up Africa was handed over to BBC World News in April 2017.
