REPORTS TO: IREX Program Representative

LOCATION: International, Remote



IREX is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to building a more just, prosperous, and inclusive world by empowering youth, cultivating leaders, strengthening institutions, and extending access to quality education and information.



IREX is seeking a paid promotions trainer to design and deliver a series of workshops and courses for Syrian media partners through IREX’s Supporting Independent Media in Syria II (SIMS-II) program. IREX has several partners (radio, TV and online) that produce Arabic-language broadcasts, including current affairs and news programs, to Syrian audiences.


The trainer will work with the partners to develop a practical strategy to boost the organization's content and to build audience using the latest online tools. The workshops should include introductions to paid promotions on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram and examine the benefits of using paid promotions as opposed to organic reach, create content to suit paid promotions, and target audiences through paid promotions. The workshops should be designed specifically for each partner to meet their unique needs and potential audiences. The workshops will be carried out online.




  • Design workshops on paid promotions for each partner.
  • Deliver workshops on paid promotions.
  • Create a paid promotions strategy for each partner.




  • Minimum ten years’ experience working in commercial media.
  • Proven expertise in training and consultancy.
  • Experience of working in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) geographic region preferred.
  • Native Arabic language preferred.

Application deadline:  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Shortlisted candidates will be subject to a verbal interview. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Engagement will require submission of a sample work product and successful reference check. 

IREX may at its discretion ask for additional information. Issuing this call does not commit IREX to select any candidate. IREX reserves the right, based on availability of funding and consultant performance, to increase the duration and/or enter into subsequent contractual agreements with the selected Consultants without re-publicizing the opportunity.
