Restless Development Vacancy: Country Director - Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Country Director – Tanzania

Location: Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

Restless Development is the banner carrier for youth-led development, demonstrating from the grassroots to the global policy levels that young people can and must play a lead role in development.

We’ve been in Tanzania for the last twenty years, growing, changing and responding to the most urgent issues facing young Tanzanians. Directly reaching over 110,000 young people across 14 regions each year, it is our young volunteers and youth networks that lead and deliver transformative change with and for young people.

We're now recruiting for a new Country Director in Tanzania to build on the successful legacy of our outgoing Director by leading the review, development and implementation of our next Tanzania strategy (2016 to 2021). From the agency’s office in Dar es Salaam (and with regular travel to our offices in the Southern Highlands and other zones), s/he will lead the direction of 40 staff members, through the management of a Number 2 who heads up operations of the agency in country. The Country Director will work alongside a dynamic National Board made up of currently 10 members, and will inherit established networks and partnerships with a range of national civil society partners, bi-lateral and multi-lateral donors and government.

If you share our values and passion for youth-led development, if you can inspire, lead and develop others and have the energy to make a real and lasting difference in Tanzania and as part of our global leadership, then we'd really like to hear from you.

Closing Date: Midnight (UK Time) on Thursday 21st August, 2014.
