Africa’s media landscape is changing. It is one of the fastest developing news markets in the world with mobile technology transforming lives, internet connectivity increasing, the radio market remaining relatively strong and Television migrating from analogue to digital.

The BBC World Service remains the leading international broadcaster in Africa, reaching a weekly audience of more than 100 million across all platforms and Social Media. Globally, the BBC reaches a weekly audience of 320 million weekly across various platforms.

Over the next four years, the BBC World Service will be expanding its multimedia operations in Africa by doubling the number of language services from 6 to 12.

Three of the new language services, Pidgin, Yoruba and Igbo, will serve our audiences in Nigeria and West Africa. You will be based in Kano, working alongside our operation in Abuja from where the BBC currently produces its Hausa service output. There is a strong emphasis on reaching and connecting with young audiences.

We are now looking for a reporter with strong digital journalism and language skills (Pidgin, Yoruba and Igbo, as well as English) to work in Kano.

This role involves working irregular hours including weekends and public holidays.

This job closed on 17 November, 2017 so we’re afraid you can no longer apply for this role.
