UGANDA - COUNTRY DIRECTOR

In Uganda Restless Development has been supporting youth-led development for over 15 years. We focus on three key areas: youth livelihoods; youth sexual and reproductive health; and youth civic participation. All of our programmes are designed, implemented and monitored and evaluated by young people. Through community-based programming we are building an evidence base on what works in youth-led development, and are using this to drive our advocacy at local and national levels. We also support increased coordination across the youth sector, including chairing the National Youth Working Group which is a vibrant network of over 70 youth-focused organisations and institutions.

This is an exciting time of growth and increased national profile for Restless Development Uganda. We are seeking a dynamic and talented individual to lead the organisation to even greater success over the coming years through working closely with the Country Leadership Team and Restless Development International. She/he will have proven senior management experience, a strong commitment to youth-led development, and the passion and dedication required to ensure we deliver on our ambitious national strategy.
