Sierra Leone - Regional Operations Manager (Bo)

CLOSING DATE: 12pm Friday 23rd November 2018

LOCATION: Bo, Sierra Leone

SALARY: SLL 121,192,728 gross per annum


We know young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our world, but they are being overlooked and ignored. We are the agency that works with young people so they can lead in solving those challenges. Whether that means supporting communities to end child marriage or prevent HIV, we work with young people to change their lives and the lives of people in their communities. Our programmes are genuinely life-changing, but can’t do any of this without talented, creative individuals at every level of our organisation.

In Sierra Leone, Restless Development has operated at the invitation of the government since 2005, working with and for young people to help the country rebuild from civil war. When Ebola broke out in 2014, it was Restless Development that worked with the next generation of young people – including 3,000 social mobilisers – to reach and build trust with communities across half the country, playing a critical role as the country put an end to the disease.

Now, after 2018 elections committed the country to a new national trajectory, Restless Development is working with hundreds of young leaders across the country to unlock the power and agency that exists within communities, strengthen the provision of key services, and build a new future for Sierra Leone. In 2019, Restless Development Sierra Leone is scaling up significantly, and is likely to more than double the scale of its operations with the delivery of two major new programmes.

ABOUT the role

The Regional Operations Manager will lead and manage all aspects of Restless Development’s operations in Bo. As the most senior representative for Restless Development in its Northern regional office, the Manager is responsible for representing the agency to communities, local authorities, partners and donors, and for programme management and quality. The Manager is responsible for upholding and modelling Restless Development’s values and ethos across the region, as well as ensuring the agency’s national policies and procedures are adhered to by staff. The position also plays a crucial role in maintaining line of sight between Bo-based staff and the Freetown head office, and will contribute to strategic decision making for the national Hub as an important member of the agency’s Management Team.
