Gender and Media Trainer
International • MENA,

POSITION TITLE: Gender and Media Trainer

REPORTS TO: IREX Program Representative

LOCATION: International; (IREX may require that certain training assignments be conducted remotely).


IREX is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to building a more just, prosperous, and inclusive world by empowering youth, cultivating leaders, strengthening institutions, and extending access to quality education and information.


IREX is seeking Gender and Media (radio and TV) experts and trainers to design and deliver on-site (on-the-job) trainings for MENA media outlet partners supported by IREX. IREX has several program partners (both radio and TV) that provide Arabic-language broadcasts, including information and news programs, to MENA audiences. Managers and staff at these stations have received varying levels of training in broadcast operations, management, and production. Now IREX seeks experienced Gender and Media trainers to 1) build the stations' the knowledge and skills to produce gender sensitive content; and 2) to increase gender equity outlets' operations and management policies and practices.

IREX will select multiple candidates, on an ongoing basis, to design and deliver training workshops and coaching sessions, and provide reporting/follow-up activities with the IREX team and lead media development consultants (mentors) assigned to specific IREX partner stations. Training assignments will range in duration from less than one (1) week to part-time engagement over one (1) year; however, consultant contracts may include multiple training assignments within a single scope of work. In most cases, trainers will be embedded within media outlets as part of training assignments.

IREX is seeking trainers with documented experience delivering on-site training (ideally in the MENA region) on a full range of gender topics across the spectrum of broadcast management, operations, and production, including gender sensitive content.


IREX will assign selected trainers to work with one or more partner stations on a given training assignment. Some training activities will require co-training among two or more selected trainers. Certain factors may change between assignments, such as the training site and/or beneficiaries, training topics and/or format, the number and/or experience level of trainees, IREX's reporting requirements, the presence of co-trainers, and so on. Successful candidates will be able to establish and maintain collegial, supportive, and productive relationships with partner station management and staff, as well as other IREX consultants and trainers.

Selected candidates will:
  • Develop on-the-job training plans and schedules as directed by IREX and in coordination with IREX lead media development consultants (mentors);
  • Deliver on-the-job training workshops and coaching sessions at radio or television outlets (circumstances may occasionally require that training be delivered remotely);
  • Provide IREX and beneficiary media outlets with recommendations for follow-up training and management decisions based on results of training interventions;
  • Produce comprehensive, written, English-language reports, detailing activities undertaken within each training assignment, actions taken by beneficiary outlets as a result of training activities, recommendations for future training, and other information as requested by IREX; and,
  • Perform other responsibilities as requested.


Upon receiving a training assignment, IREX and the consultant will agree on an estimate of time required to complete the duties described above that aligns with the needs of the partner media outlet(s).

  • Minimum of three (3) years of experience working on gender issues is required (experience working on gender issues in a media context strongly desired)
  • Demonstrated experience as a trainer in broadcast television, radio, or a related field is required (3 years' experience is strongly desired)
  • Minimum of three (3) years of experience in television or radio in such roles as station general manager, program manager, journalist/reporter/correspondent, newsroom manager, editor/editor-in-chief, producer, presenter, technical engineer, or their equivalent is preferred
  • Experience working in political transition and conflict/post-conflict environments is preferred.
  • Experience working in the MENA (Middle East/North Africa) geographic region is strongly preferred.
  • A high degree of professional reputation will be considered as part of candidates' evaluation. Candidates should therefore include professional references within their CVs, ideally for the broadcast outlets at which they have radio and/or television work experience or for which they have delivered training.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills
  • Excellent English-language writing skills for training assignment reports are required.
  • Advanced or native fluency in Arabic is preferred.
  • Strong interpersonal skills, particularly in multi-cultural environments

  • A strong commitment to IREX partners' success
  • Excellent communication skills and sensitivity toward those affected by conflict/displacement, needed to foster effective working relationships with IREX partner staff.
  • Willingness to work in a flexible manner in terms of number of working hours, days of work; and,
  • High ethical standards.


Please send a resume and cover letter to Write Gender and Media Trainer as the subject of the email.


Shortlisted candidates will be reviewed on a rolling basis until all positions are filled or until further notice.
