Development Media International Country Operations Manager Jobs in Uganda

Development Media International (DMI) delivers media campaigns aimed at changing behaviours, promoting health and saving lives in developing countries. We are the first organisation to scientifically demonstrate that mass media can increase life-saving behaviours.

DMI recently published the results of its 5-year, £7m randomised controlled trial in West Africa which showed that 56% more children were taken for treatment for malaria, 73% more for diarrhoea and 39% more for pneumonia following exposure to our campaign. Modelling indicates that over 3000 lives were saved during the campaign and that our approach is one of the most cost-effective ways of saving children’s lives.

DMI is looking for a Country Operations Manager (Uganda) to coordinate and deliver a new family planning campaign in Uganda. As part of a DfID funded consortium, DMI will play a key role in providing an integrated approach to family planning, including access to modern contraception and sexual and reproductive health, for the most underserved women and girls in marginalized populations.

The campaign will be part of a larger programme in which DMI will also run similar activities in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Zambia. DMI’s role will primarily focus on demand creation, and will involve the production of radio and TV spots, as well as other media outputs.


  • Coordinating, managing and delivering, at national and local level in Uganda, DMI’s outputs as part of a major family planning campaign in East Africa.
  • Planning appropriate national and local level activities and tasks in line with the wider programme plan and reporting progress against agreed milestones, budgets and timelines.
  • Managing national level project budgets,
    in line with internal procedures, including financial reporting, maintaining accurate records of expenditure and forecasting future expenditure within budgetary constraints.
  • Building, negotiating and maintaining partnerships with local media providers (for example radio stations and studios) and other stakeholders as appropriate.
  • Effectively line managing a campaign coordinator (local staff).
  • Liaison, at national and local level, with consortium partners.
  • Communicating with, and reporting to, relevant personnel at DMI UK and other DMI offices as required.
  • Other tasks as required by DMI.


  • Experience delivering complex projects or programmes, delivering a range of outputs on time and on budget, ideally with direct experience in developing countries.
  • Previous experience of project level financial / budgetary management.
  • Strong intellectual ability, as evidenced by a good degree or similar qualifications in a relevant field and performance at interview.
  • Ability to work effectively in collaboration with partners and other stakeholders (internal and external), including those with differing agendas.
  • Self-motivated, able to cope with uncertainty and with the confidence to take initiative. Resilient and good-humoured under pressure.
