PSI - Population Services International

PSI Mozambique is a dynamic, tech-savvy, business-oriented organization. We work at the intersection of marketing and public health. And we are looking for a writer, based in Maputo, to tell our stories.


We are data-obsessed and we expect our writer to find the best possible way to translate complex data into English. Which means this is not a creative writing job. It is about finding structures to tell a story built around concrete data and concrete strategies.

Your outputs will include:

  • Reports
  • Concept papers
  • Synthesis & analysis
  • Blog posts
  • Infographics

The job is equal parts analytic and creative. It requires the ability to analyse & visualize data and skills in articulating a compelling story in plain language. You will need at least:

  • Very strong data analysis skills, including visualization (quant analysis in excel at the minimum)
  • Excellent writing skills
  • Passion for communication
  • Ability to articulate complex concepts in plain language
  • Tech savvyness - a very good understanding of what is possible with technology and the confidence to adopt and pursue it
  • Social Media
  • Attention to details
  • Previous experience with donors, contracts
  • Available for potential field visits to the provinces

In addition to the must-haves above, it would be great if you would also bring to the table:

  • Working proficiency in Portuguese
  • An understanding of M&E systems, databases
  • Knowledge of Wordpress or other blogging platforms
  • Cover Letter
  • Curriculum Vitae
