HOW CAN I WORK FOR RESTLESS DEVELOPMENT?

We currently operate in ten countries, see 'Where We Are'. In each of these countries we have opportunities for people passionate about youth led development to work with us, volunteer with us and support our campaigns. 

We advertise all our job opportunities on our Vacancies page, so be sure to check this page regularly. Alternatively, we also advertise positions on Twitter, Facebook and our new LinkedIn jobs page, so be sure to follow us on social media to stay updated on new vacancies.

How do I apply for a role?

When a role is advertised, we ask all candidates to complete and submit the specific application form for that role which can be downloaded from the website. 

You can also apply for more than one job at a time by completeing the respective application forms, however we advise you to check carefully that your skills, experience and knowledge match against each vacancy you wish to apply for.

Do you accept PROSPECTIVE CVs?

We do not accept prospective CVs or Cover Letters. We have an application form as part of each job application pack that needs to be completed fully and returned to the stated address in order to be considered for a position.

WHAT QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE DO I NEED TO WORK AT RESTLESS DEVELOPMENT?

As an agency, we believe in the potential of young people and believe they have the motivations, enthusiasm and dedication to lead change and development; this is also reflected in how we recruit for positions within our organisation. We understand that is it is not always necessary to have had direct experience of a role, instead in each stage of the application process we look for transferable knowledge and skills, motivation and passions which align with our values. We are also dedicated to the professional and personal development of our staff and have a wide variety of training and development opportunities to support staff to grow into their role.

When will I hear back about whether my application was sucessful?

Once an application deadline has passed we will begin shortlisting candidates and inviting them to interview. If you do not hear from us within two weeks of the deadline passing you should assume that on that occasion your application has been unsuccessful. We apologise for this inconvenience; we would love to reply to all candidates but do not currently have the resources to do so.

If my application is unsuccessful, can I receive feedback?

We are unfortunately unable to give individual feedback to applicants not invited to interview due to the large amount of applications we receive across a wide range of vacancies.

If you are invited to an interview and do not progress to the next stage, we will provide individual feedback to all candidates.

I MISSED THE APPLICATION DEADLINE. WOULD YOU ACCEPT A LATE APPLICATION?

Due to the number of applications we receive per vacancy, we will not consider applications received after the deadline has passed.

Do I need a work permit to work for Restless Development in a country I am not from?

We will clearly specify in the application pack if we are able to sponsor applicants without a work permit. It is role dependent, and not possible for all roles.
