We undertake investigations for corporate clients while working towards creating a radio documentary series on the connection between spiritual and political issues in Ghana.
You must be interested in – and unafraid of -- all matters spiritual. In particular, you will be negotiating with Ga priests, wulomei and other local Ga leaders, as well as with Ga gods and ancestors. You will need to get to know them, set up interviews with them and make professional quality audio recordings. You will need to accurately transcribe, interpret, and translate what they say. You should have an interest in storytelling.
ABOUT THE EMPLOYER:
You would be working for me, a crusty old English/German journalist. I’ve spent much of my life in and around Africa and settled in Accra a couple of years ago to produce a radio series I call ‘Invisible Governance’. I have a small team, that includes an administrator-investigator, two housekeepers and security staff. We are located at Hechtech House in Osu, which contains our office, some guest rooms and a function hall.
