The Bhekisisa Mail & Guardian Centre for Health Journalism is looking for freelance radio journalists or podcast producers with at least five years experience to produce high quality, sound-rich, public broadcast-style podcasts of between 4 and 7 minutes.
Bhekisisa focuses on solutions-based narrative journalism, and we’re looking for producers who can pair strong narratives with science in podcasts that use natural sound to bring these stories to life.
If you can’t get enough of podcasts like those from Radio Lab and National Public Radio and want to help pioneer this same kind of quality here at home, this might be an opportunity for you.
To apply, please send your CV with three contactable references, cover letter and a link to three examples of 3-5 minute radio packages you have produced to email@example.com. Please note that all radio package examples must include natural sound. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
For any questions, please contact Bhekisisa Programme Associate Roz Daniel on 011 250 7300
Applications close on 1 June 2018
