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 currently looking for an Investments and Partnerships Manager to be part of Restless Development’s Zambia team.
Restless Development Zambia has since 2003, been equipping youth to voice their priorities; facilitating their access to decision makers for accountability; and supporting platforms for youth to demonstrate that they are effective change agents. We strengthen government, institutions and civil society partners’ capacity to engage with youth. Our evidence based policy engagement is unique in its approach, cutting across government, private sector and the NGO sector and this has set us apart as an innovative partner in development.
The Investment and Partnerships Manager will lead on building relationships with the private sector in Zambia and pro-actively seek out new potential partners and donors, developing innovative ways to diversify our funding stream, along with maintaining relationships with diverse strategic partners already in place including government, multilateral and bilateral agencies, trusts and foundations. This role will also manage existing donor partnerships in-country, and will work closely with the Hub Director and Leadership Team to enhance programme quality, through effective programme development, proposal writing and project cycle management in line with donor requirements and internal Programme Quality standards.
