  • Girl Effect is an organisation working to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. We do this by investing in programmes for girls, connecting girls to each other to amplify their voices, and brokering access to the critical assets girls need. We drive behaviour change by harnessing media in innovative ways and building social networks to shift girls’ perceptions of themselves and how others value them.

    • Context of the Role

      Girl Effect is seeking to recruit a gender consultant with experience in content development and training to deliver services in support of Girl Effect’s role in the development and delivery of the Project Helpline pilot. The consultant will be required to lead the development of girl-centred content and deliver training, working closely with Girl Specialists in the London and Abuja office. This pilot will use existing content from a former radio programme pilot and adapt it based on a co-design session with girls before the content gets built into the IVR platform. The consultant will also write the script that role models will talk through with girls. In addition to these pieces of content, the consultant will develop the training content and deliver the training to role models through a 5 day workshop.

      If not based in Nigeria, the consultant will be required to travel to Abuja and to other locations in Nigeria as required.
