Young people share a restless determination to address the problems that affect them the most. That’s where we come in.
At Restless Development, we’re proud to be the banner carrier for youth-led development, demonstrating from the grassroots to the global policy levels that young people can and must play a lead role in development. As a result, Restless Development is repeatedly cited as a model of best practice in youth-led development by the World Bank, the UK Department for International Development (DFID), UNICEF, UNAIDS and others.
With over 25 years’ experience, Restless Development has been providing structured opportunities for young people to contribute to development. As part of a VSO led consortium, we are responsible for the delivery of a DFID funded International Citizen Service (ICS) programme. This gives young people from the UK the chance to volunteer in Africa and Asia. We now have a large and growing number of engaged volunteers, advocates, and alumni that we engage with in the UK to take action and campaign for global justice.
We’ve recently restructured our unit and we are ready to work with an expanding network of engaged young people and deliver hard hitting campaigns. With a few months to 2015, we have a unique opportunity for engaging young people – at the moment when the world’s largest youth population in history coincides with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) being agreed. We’re looking for two excellent Network Support Officers to support our campaigns team at this critical time.
These excellent entry-level roles provide fantastic experience of working in an International Development organization in a campaigning capacity. The successful candidates will work closely together to support our network of young people and volunteers to push for global justice.
