Farm Radio International is a Canadian organization that has been working since 1979 to harness the power of radio to meet the needs of small-scale farmers. We work with more than 1,200 radio organizations located in more than 38 African countries to fight poverty and food insecurity. With the benefit of FRI resources and training, our broadcasting partners deliver practical, relevant, and timely information to tens of millions of rural Africans, including women farmers. We also work with a range of funding partners to implement radio projects that address specific development challenges and community needs delivering results for farmers and other rural denizens.

One of our next big priorities is to let more global citizens know about our work so that they can become involved as champions. To help advance that, we’re looking to hire a Digital Marketing Specialist who knows their way around a hashtag, and is able to publish stories and content in a way that gets noticed and inspires people to take action. This is a role for someone with a small side-hustle but wants to make a big impact, or someone who wants to work 4 days a week with a Friday off for other things. 


In this role, you’ll take the wheel for all our social media platforms. More importantly, you’ll help us to refine our brand voice on social and digital channels and make sure that our stories and calls to action reach the right people.

  • Supporting the team in ideating, executing and advertise podcasts and other digital content 
  • Uploading content to our website

  • Support country teams in their social media needs 

These duties will make up most of your days — but if you have other/different assets you believe would be valuable for this position, we encourage you to include that information in your application.  Job descriptions are flexible for the right candidate. 



While this position is ideally for someone with a minimum of 5 years of experience, we know that experience can come in many forms, both in formal (paid) work as well as through volunteer or unpaid work. So, please include all of your experience in your application.


  • Strong competency in creating and implementing social media strategies

  • Competency in google analytics
  • Competency in basic website design 
  • Well organized 
  • Be excellent at testing ideas
