Radio technician, information electronics technician, Juba, Southern Sudan (m/f/d)

The nine stations of the Catholic Radio Network (CRN) reach around four million people in Southern Sudan. The local language programmes address issues and concerns that have a direct impact on communities. In addition to the radio transmission of peace messages, there are expert talks, discussions with listeners, and people report on their own experiences. The programmes are also aimed specifically at population groups who are often excluded from the decision-making process: children, young people and women. Around 70 percent of Southern Sudanese over the age of 15 cannot read or write. As a result, radio is the second most important source of information after oral communication.

  • You advise the Board of Management of the radio network on possible solutions to the technical problems of the radio stations.
  • You are responsible for the proper spending and administration of funds on-site in accordance with the donor guidelines and the specifications of AGIAMONDO. In doing so, you work in partnership with the CRN.
