With over 25 years’ experience, Restless Development has been providing structured opportunities for young people to contribute to development. As part of a VSO led consortium, we are responsible for the delivery of a DFID funded International Citizen Service (ICS) programme. This gives young people from the UK the chance to volunteer in Africa and Asia. We now have a large and growing number of engaged volunteers, advocates, and alumni that we engage with in the UK to take action and campaign for positive change.
We’ve recently restructured our unit and we are ready to work with an expanding network of engaged young people and deliver hard hitting campaigns. With a few months to 2015, we have a unique opportunity for engaging young people – at the moment when the world’s largest youth population in history coincides with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) being agreed. We’re looking for an excellent manager to lead our campaigns and networks team at this critical time.
The Campaigns Manager is responsible for leading Restless Development’s growing UK campaigns and networks team of 6 people in the UK. The post sits on the unit’s Management Committee and is accountable for the strategy development and delivery of campaigns and programmes including: Voices for Development, Action at Home, Student Stop AIDS Campaign, Action/2015 and developing our future campaigns and youth engagement in the UK.
