Are you an experienced multimedia journalist? 
Do you have a passion for broadcasting? 
And do you have fluency in Somali and English? 
If so, we have openings for talented and enthusiastic journalists to join our team in Nairobi.
The BBC Somali Service is the most trusted Somali news service on radio, online (, mobile and social media to our audiences in the Horn of Africa and across the diaspora. And this year we’ll be launching TV bulletins. 
Our audiences are at the heart of everything we do and through social media, they not only tell us what news stories matter to them but they also have the chance to debate, comment and engage directly with others and the BBC. We follow the news wherever it leads.

As a Broadcast Journalist, you’ll be researching, writing and editing or translating stories as well as finding contributors and interviewees. 

Presenting and voicing on air will also be part of your role. 
Alongside your proven multimedia journalistic experience, ideally you’ll have worked as a reporter in the field and will have a good range of contacts and sources.
You’ll also need a solid current knowledge of African news and current affairs and an understanding of audience needs across the continent.

We care about our people, and take our responsibilities towards them very seriously. 
As well as fair terms and conditions, we also offer really impressive benefits – including twenty one days’ annual leave and medical insurance. 
We also offer world-class opportunities to learn and develop inside the BBC.
