DT Global is driven by a fundamental commitment to one goal: to work in partnership with communities, governments, and the private sector to deliver innovative, data-driven solutions that transform lives beyond expectations. DT Global—launched in 2019—is built on legacy companies AECOM International Development's Services Sector, Development Transformations, IMC Worldwide, and Cardno International Development. To fulfill its profit-for-purpose mission, DT Global is a key donor to the DT Institute, an independent not-for-profit organization, in support of DTI's efforts to test new ideas or expand on donor partner priorities with the aim to improve as many lives as possible.
Our global team of almost 2,500 staff and experts work in over 100 countries. We aim to maximize sustainable development impact across a wide range of practice areas, including Conflict Prevention, Stabilization & Transition; Economic Growth; Environment & Infrastructure; Governance; and Human Development. We meet communities where they are on the development spectrum and help them move to where they want to be. Together, we bring over 60 years of experience, relationships, and technical excellence to improve lives around the world on behalf of our partners, clients, and stakeholders.
DT Global is seeking applications from qualified candidates for a USAID-funded Moldova program, to be based in Chisinau. The Media and Communications Strategy (MCS) Officer will be responsible for implementing, overseeing, and managing strategic communication and media strategies that help support activities that counter disinformation through support to independent media outlets and content creation that fosters national unity and social cohesion. The MCS Officer will play a key role in developing and leveraging relationships with key media and communications-focused stakeholders, including national and sub-national government officials, civil society activists, and media outlets to help improve the program's understanding of Moldova's changing media environment and inform any resulting adaptation of strategy and objectives as directed by the USAID or the program's Chief of Party. The MCS Officer will also help develop activity ideas surrounding the expansion of independent media in Moldova and curate the high volume of information that comes from the implementation of program activities, as well as other sources, such as open-source reporting and media monitoring and research efforts, to contribute to reporting and learning materials and deliverables as needed. In these areas the MCS Officer will coordinate closely with other program staff, especially the Monitoring Evaluation and Learning Specialist, and will liaise with USAID's Washington, D.C.-based Media Cohort.
