“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.
Young people share a restless determination to address the problems that affect them the most. That’s where we come in.
The Programme Support Team, within the International Programmes Unit works to support our global hubs in the implementation and quality of the DFID-funded International Citizen Service (ICS) and wider volunteer-led programmes. Working closely with teams in 7 global hubs, including the UK, we lead the global vision of ICS and drive high quality delivery of the programme through strong support and coordination.
As part of a VSO-led consortium we will provide structured opportunities for thousands of young people from the UK and global South to work together to address some of the world’s most pressing issues on the ground while developing a generation of active, global citizens.
The Programme Support Coordinator is integral to ICS delivery and programme quality and to our support to our global hubs.
