“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 Zambia Director will take leadership of the Zambia Hub, working through the management team to ensure all areas of financial, programmatic, people, quality and performance functions are implemented to a high standard. The Zambia Director will drive national governance alongside the Board, to ensure that the agency delivers its ambitious strategy.
The Zambia Director will have strong senior management experience in fundraising, programmes, finance, operations and/or human resources ideally in the development sector. The director will also have demonstrated success in fundraising and partnerships development and experience in distance management and working with multiple offices. The Director will also have experience in policy engagement and working with government stakeholders, a willingness to travel, experience of youth programming and knowledge of relevant policies, and of course must be committed to the role of young people in development and the Restless Development’s values.
We accept applications from around the world and offer a very generous relocation package.
