INTERNATIONAL - DATA SPECIALIST (BIG IDEA)

PARTNERSHIP WITH RESTLESS DEVELOPMENT’S BIG IDEA:
CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

Restless Development is a youth-led development agency whose mission is to place young people at the forefront of change and development. At Restless Development we have a Big Idea: mobilise young people, empower them with knowledge, data and technology, and the skills to demand change effectively and they’ll drive accountability at a local, national and global level. We’re now testing this hypothesis with our Big Idea project, a multidisciplinary approach to youth-led accountability. The Big Idea project is launching with pilots in Ghana, Nepal and Tanzania where young people will generate and interrogate data, and use it to push for greater participation and increased accountability from decision makers on specific national agendas that matter to them.

Restless Development is now finalising how we will support young people to use data to drive accountability, and will be launching the full pilot phase of the Big Idea in late 2014. With this in mind, we are now looking for a technical support partner to help us make sure the young people we’re working with are set up to succeed, using the right datasets in the most effective way to achieve change. The overall purpose of this partnership is therefore to support Restless Development in finalising the data components of the Big Idea project.

Closing Date: Thursday 4th September, 2014.

To submit your expression of interest please read the documebt below and send to ceciliam@restlessdevelpment.org

GHANA - DATA AUDIT CONSULTANT (BIG IDEA)

Restless Development is a youth-led development agency whose mission is to place young people at the forefront of change and development. At Restless Development we have a Big Idea: mobilise young people, empower them with knowledge, data and technology, and the skills to demand change effectively and they’ll drive accountability at a local, national and global level. We’re now testing this hypothesis with our Big Idea Programme, a multidisciplinary approach to youth-led accountability. The Big Idea Programme is launching with pilot projects in Ghana, Nepal and Tanzania where young people will generate and interrogate data, and use it to push for greater participation and increased accountability from decision makers on specific national agendas that matter to them. Youth Empowerment Synergy (YES-Ghana) is a leading youth development organisation in Ghana. It has spearheaded several successful national youth campaigns, most notably the development of a Youth Manifesto for the 2012 general election, with input from more than a million young people across the ten regions of Ghana. In 2012 YES-Ghana also led Restless Development’s Youth Consultations for a Post-2015 Framework in Ghana. Building on our partnership, YES-Ghana has developed the Big Idea pilot for Ghana, with support from Restless Development, and will lead the implementation of the project.

As part of the programme development phase Restless Development consulted extensively with local partners and conducted desk based research, through these processes we identified a significant gap in data about young people. The purpose of this consultancy is to analyse the extent to which key partners in Ghana are lacking credible, usable data on young people upon which they can develop effective youth policies and programmes, and recommend how to take this forward in the Post 2015 framework.

Closing Date: Sunday 7th September, 2014.
