The OSCE Mission to Montenegro provides assistance to the host country to institute reforms, and in further strengthening democratic development in line with the OSCE’s commitments and principles. The Mission works with the national and local authorities, civil society and the media in order to build media professionalism. In this regard the Media Programme of the Mission intends to organise trainings and consultancies to multiple stakeholders that will allow for a constructive use of media in Montenegro. The Mission will tackle the issue of financial sustainability, as one of the main challenges the media is facing, by providing specialised training.
The offered, by the Media Programme of the Mission, financial sustainability training will aim at improved capacities of media outlets to implement successful business models and thus to ensure their financial future. Furthermore, the training will provide media management, as well as media marketing and sales staff, guidelines for creating successful business strategies. In particular, participants will strengthen their knowledge about preparing basic marketing and sales materials (incl. media data, price lists, advertising formats, et.), developing an effective sales strategy, planning cycles of acquisition, pitching proposals to clients (incl. donors), conducting basic audience research, analysing their competition, identifying potential clients, and preparing basic business plans.
The Media Programme therefore invites applications from highly qualified, energetic and experienced international professionals for the temporary consultancy post of International Consultant for Media Financial Sustainability who will develop and deliver a two-day training on financial sustainability for media management, as well as media marketing and sales staff, aimed to provide guidelines for creating successful business strategies.
