Development Media International (DMI) is seeking a highly skilled Director of Business Development to lead their fundraising from institutional donors and trusts. Managing a team of three, this is an initial 16-month maternity contract with significant likelihood of permanent employment as the organisation continues to expand.
DMI creates evidence-based behaviour change campaigns to improve health and save lives. We deliver campaigns at scale to maximise impact and cost-effectiveness.
DMI was set up in 2005 by Roy Head, who has spent his career pushing the limits of what mass media can achieve in post-conflict and low-income countries. Roy worked at the BBC and the UN before setting up the health division of the BBC World Service Trust in 1997, and leading award-winning media campaigns in 16 countries. Roy set up DMI to bring scientific rigour to mass media campaigning, by modelling and testing how many lives can be saved, and acting on this.
We run radio, television and mobile campaigns to change behaviours and improve lives in developing countries. We generate evidence of impact using robust evaluations, and scale up the most effective campaigns to reach many millions of people. Our focus areas include child survival, nutrition, family planning and early childhood development. We are the first organisation to demonstrate through two randomized controlled trials (RCTs), that mass media interventions can change behaviours.
Application deadline: We are running an open recruitment process with no formal closing date and will move to interview as soon as suitable applications are received.
