About Restless Development

Restless Development is a global non profit agency. We support the collective power of young leaders to create a better world. We are independently registered and governed in nine countries (India, Nepal, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda, UK, USA, Zambia and Zimbabwe) bound together by our vision for youth power. We run youth-led programmes to tackle the issues that young people care about the most as well as running a growing global Youth Collective.

We know young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our world, but they are being side-lined. 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 we can’t do any of this without talented, creative individuals at every level of our organisation.

Our approach to safeguarding

Restless Development considers the welfare and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults to be an organisational imperative with primacy over the success of programmes or strategic objectives. We recognize that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and we expect all of our staff, volunteers and partners to ensure we protect the communities in which we operate from harm and abide by our Safeguarding Policy.

About the Role

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, institutional 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.

Restless Development will be implementing a Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Project in Chadiza, Kasenengwa, and Mambwe in Eastern province. The Project Targets to put out of school adolescent girls’ needs and rights at the centre of all project activities. This target group has been selected because they are consistently left out of traditional adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (ASRHR) programming, are difficult to reach, and often have the greatest need.

The Project also seeks to Increase enjoyment of health-related human rights by the most marginalised and vulnerable women and girls’ rights holders, particularly out of school adolescent girls in target areas. Increase equitable use of SRHR health services by diverse groups of women, adolescent girls, and children’s rights holders, particularly out of school adolescent girls, improved provision of gender and adolescent responsive, inclusive and accountable health services by health care providers for diverse groups of women adolescent girls and children’s rights holders, particularly out of school adolescent girls. Improved effectiveness of key stakeholders, particularly women and girls’ rights organisations to advocate for evidence-based, accountable and equitable ASRHR policies, legal frameworks and services.

Restless Development therefore seeks to recruit for the project a dynamic, inspired and innovative Zambian to fill the role of a Driver. The Driver will be based in Chipata, they will be in charge of all Vehicle management. Taking a lead role in maintaining all vehicles and ensuring that they are road worth at all times, support programmes during their Field visits and offer Administrative Support by taking the lead in ensuring that all official documents are adequately filed and placed in easily identified logical order.
