Naomi Fowler ■ Seeking a tax justice podcast commentator and consultant in Arabic
The Tax Justice Network produces five monthly podcasts: the Taxcast in English, Justicia ImPositiva in Spanish, Impôts et Justice Sociale in French, É da sua conta in Portuguese, and our Arabic podcast الجباية ببساطة
Our monthly podcasts are aimed at ordinary citizens, campaigners and practitioners, filling the gap in regional media coverage and analysis of tax, redistribution, financial secrecy and the global infrastructure of corruption, holding governments to account. The podcasts empower citizens to engage in and influence debates on these issues, and provide the solutions needed to support change. The podcasts are offered free to radio stations, as well as for downloading. They also reach key influencers: journalists, researchers, bloggers, tax and corruption experts, lawyers, policy makers, politicians and NGOs.
The Tax Justice Network is seeking a tax justice commentator and consultant for our Arabic podcast. Please find all details on the role and how to apply here. The deadline for applications is July 20th 2020. [Update: application deadline now extended to September 2nd 2020 with a new start date of September 7th 2020]
Our producer Walid Ben Rhouma has been producing and hosting the podcast for almost three years and, after a happy and fruitful relationship, our collaborating journalist and human rights expert Osama Diab is leaving our tax justice podcast family and handing on the microphone!
If you’re the right person to replace him, we’d love to meet you. You need to be an Arabic and English speaker who can continue Osama’s role of helping educate listeners in an accessible way on tax justice, helping source stories, great interviewees, compile headlines, always finding effective ways to explain to listeners about taxation, financial secrecy, tax havens, corporate tax cheating, and economic justice, communicating the global power aspects of who makes the rules, and how.
You will need to be very familiar with the Tax Justice Network’s solutions to all these problems and able to communicate them and ensure the programme is ‘on-message’. You will also appear each month on the podcast as a commentator discussing and analysing one or two agreed topics relevant to that month with Walid. You will be supported by me, Naomi Fowler – I produce the English language podcast, coordinate all our
podcasts, and will have editorial oversight.
Please find all application details here. I look forward to hearing from you. Here’s the team you’ll be a part of, broadcasting tax justice in five languages:
