Global Salary Scale 

We are proud to have a transparent and equitable Global Salary Scale (GSS) across all of our global locations. Our GSS is calculated to ensure all staff on equivalent grades - from the UK to Uganda, from Sierra Leone to Nepal - receive a fair and comparable wage in line with their peers in other Restless Development locations. 


Living Wage Employer logo


We are a London Living Wage Employer and striving towards a Global Living Wage.


We want to see you grow with us. 
That’s why we offer a variety of development opportunities which foster our creative and fulfilling work culture.


Hiring on Potential. We recruit on potential as we value your passion for the sector and desire to learn just as much as your experience. And from day one, you are supported and trained to take on responsibility and be a leader in our agency.

Global Exposure. You will play a vital role in our global agency, working with teams from other countries, or even possibly going on country support visits to share your knowledge beyond your office desk.

Time and Resources. We offer 7 days of study leave and support for your continued learning in the role.

Office-wide Away Days. We run regular full-day skills boosting sessions for our people, giving you a chance to learn new things beyond your role and meet people from all our teams.

Learning Culture. We encourage all of our people to grow and learn in their roles. For example, all staff globally have access to our Maarifa eLearning Platform to develop new skills and to support them in their role. In the UK, we step away from our day-to-day role and spend Friday afternoons learning from our colleagues and partners about exciting areas beyond our remit.

Your Development Goals. Your manager will regularly meet with you to talk about your progress towards your professional and personal goals as we ensure you have space, away from day-to-day pressures, to discuss your role and ambitions.

All the above is just a taster of what we offer at our global agency, as opportunities vary from country to country. 


Annual Leave. In most of our locations, our people are entitled to 24 days of annual leave, plus public holidays. For every new year with us, you will get an extra day of leave up to 28 days. What's more, everyone is entitled to an extra day off on their birthday!

Parenting Leave. We support expectant and new parents by offering an enhanced leave package.

More Leave. We support all of our people by providing compassionate, wedding and unpaid leave.

Time Off in Lieu. You would be granted time off in lieu if you ever were required to travel for work on weekends or work overtime.

Flexible Working. As part of our commitment to nurturing a healthy work life balance, our people can work from home and choose varied working hours.

Childcare Vouchers. In our London office our people can make tax savings by swapping a portion of their salary for childcare vouchers.

Season Ticket Loans. In the UK, we offer an interest-free loan for the purpose of purchasing an annual travel season ticket to help you save money on your daily commute.

Housing Allowance and Pension Scheme. Depending on your location and level of seniority, we offer housing allowances or contributions to your pension scheme.

Assistance line. In the UK, our people have access to a 24 hour confidential employee assistance line to discuss personal and professional issues.

All the above is just a taster of what we offer at our global agency, as benefits vary from country to country, depending on the needs of our people in each country.


Our people can relocate to do their job overseas. We offer a competetive relocation package, including: A lump-sum relocation allowance to support you in relocating to your new place of work. Out of country supplements for the duration of your time working in your new place of work. When travelling abroad with work, all our people are covered by Restless Development's travel insurance.


At Restless Development, we’re proud that the strength and integrity of our Values has been recognised by staff, beneficiaries, donors and others who we work with. Beyond this, we have a culture of recognising and celebrating both our Values and our global achievements with monthly Values Champions and an annual Values Day.
