"When young people are given enough capacity, support and trust, they are an unstoppable force for positive change.” Primrose Manyalo, Zimbabwe

We are living in a time of Peak Youth. Never before and never again will there be such a large generation of young people ready and able to deliver change in their communities. These young people will provide not just the leaders of tomorrow but the energy to bring change today.

Restless Development has recently launched an ambitious new Global Strategy. Responding to the Priorities of young people with a Model for transformative change, our strategy will pioneer both a new type of decentralised Agency locally driven, globally connected and responding to young people and a Youth Collective allowing thousands of local groups & organisations and millions of young people to lead change.

Cutting-edge, values-led and dynamic in our culture, we work out of ten global hubs to offer expertise, support and innovation for youth and partners around the globe.

We are Restless. We are unleashing the power of youth to change our world.

We are looking for a passionate and dedicated individual with plenty of potential to succeed in a global agency focussed on empowering young people to lead change and development.

The Head of Finance will be responsible for the day to day leadership of the finance team, working with the Finance Director to ensure high quality financial management across the organisation. The Head of Finance will be able to build strong relationships with staff in the UK as well as internationally in order to work with the global finance team to roll out the new finance model and to build the capacity of the finance teams and other staff.

The Head of Finance will have strong senior management experience ideally in the development sector, as well as experience of distance management and working with teams in different offices/countries. The Head of Finance will have experience of multi-currency consolidations, reporting to international donors and have demonstrated strong analytical skills and be comfortable with a rapidly changing environment. The Head of Finance must, of course, be committed to the role of young people in development and the Restless Development’s values.
