Head of Resource Mobilization – International Jobs in Restless Development Uganda vacancies in Uganda at Restless Development

# Job Description

We know young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our
world, but they are being sidelined. 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.

## About the Role.

This is not your typical fundraising role. This is an opportunity for someone
with an interest in shaping how Restless Development can restore power to
young leaders through fundraising and partnerships in line with the ambitions
in our new Global Resourcing Strategy. We are open to the successful candidate
being based in our India, Nepal, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone or
Tanzania country hubs.

We are looking for a experienced institutional / programme fundraiser who can
help us achieve the ambitious target of raising £36 million for Restless
Development’s work over the next 3 years, whilst also ensuring that more
resources are channelled to youth civil society organisations and grassroots
youth movements in the Global South, so that they are able to drive change in
their communities.

“ It is difficult to pin down one aspect of the role which makes it unique,
but building partnerships and co-creating ideas with donors and partners who
share a commitment to youth leadership and more equitable development
practises is certainly a highlight. I feel lucky to be able to work with an
inspiring global team of fundraisers on the strategic direction of our
resourcing efforts. Making decisions and problem solving collectively makes
this leadership role a joy and reflects the inclusive culture of the agency ”
– Outgoing Head of Resource Mobilisation

This role sits in Restless Development’s Resourcing Mobilisation Unit within
the International Team, managed by the Resourcing Director, with line
management responsibility for the Programme Funding Team and income targets.
At the global level, the Head of Resource Mobilisation plays a lead role on
the Resourcing Leadership Team, facilitating a coordinated global approach to
resource mobilisation efforts.

fundraising and partnerships in line with the ambitions in our new Global
Resourcing Strategy.
