We know young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our world, but they are being ignored and overlooked. 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.
Here at Restless, we’re building a progressive, forward thinking agency where our people and purpose are central to everything we do. The growth and development of our community is central to our mission of achieving a just and sustainable world for all. This year we have been developing our Restless Leaders experiential learning programme, alongside other initiatives, aimed at supporting our globally dispersed teams to reach their potentials. We have also recently experienced significant changes within our internal structures and are reviewing how we ensure the talented people in our organisation are given opportunities to learn, develop, take on more responsibilities and progress their leadership capabilities.
We are looking for a highly skilled and motivated People and Culture Specialist to join our international board of trustees and act as Chair of the People & Culture Committee. You’ll help us navigate a significant period of change, preserve the secret sauce of our inclusive culture and develop our learning and development plans.
As Chair, you will contribute to the overall governance, strategy and decision making of our board whilst also supporting the agency through a period of transformation. You will have a strong background in talent mapping and succession management, and will be able to advise internal teams on how to plan for upward mobility.
You will ideally have the following skills/ experience:
We welcome expressions of interest from everyone but particularly from young people based in the Global South as we are under-represented in this area and seek to diversify our Board.
