About the job

Who We Are

Girl Effect is an international non-profit that builds media that girls want, trust and need.

From chat-bots to chat-shows and TV dramas to tech, our content is reaching millions of girls in Africa and Asia to make choices and changes in their lives. Igniting their confidence to act differently at a time that can define their future.

We create safe spaces for girls, sharing facts, and answering questions about health, nutrition, education, relationships and so much more. And we use innovative technology so we can reach girls at scale. We arm girls with the skills to negotiate and redefine what they are told is possible, so every girl can choose to be in control of her body, her health, her learning and livelihood.

When a girl unlocks her power to make different choices that change her life, it inspires others to do so too. She starts a ripple effect that impacts her family, her community, her country. That’s the Girl Effect.

Context of the Role

Girl Effect continues improving its media and digital product(s) to help connect young women in Kenya to sexual and reproductive health services & products and also support their livelihoods. Digital technologies have opened up new ways for women to access these products and services online. However, too many barriers still prevent young women from taking advantage of these options, there therefore remains untapped opportunities to engage girls and young people one- on-one.

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. While this is currently a short-term contract, there is a possibility that this role could become a long-term role in the future.

As the Creative Lead, you will lead the creative team in delivering on the brand, content, and product requirements for the launch of the above-mentioned program in Kenya. This includes but is not limited to working with the design agency to come up with the branding for the product(s) as well as for the brand campaign, being responsible for the strategy, content planning, and delivery of all creatives and content for the campaign, working with the team to define processes and come up with the content flows within the product(s), collaborating with and contracting influencers and other media partners as needed for the campaign, etc.

You’ll need to ensure the team uses the right processes and principles to produce great results. In this context, you will need to be able to move, sometimes rapidly, from detailed, hands-on interrogations of scripts or product features to high-level discussions on the strategic direction of our work.
