ABOUT RESTLESS DEVELOPMENT SIERRA LEONE
In Sierra Leone, Restless Development has operated at the invitation of the government since 2005, working with and for young people to help the country rebuild from civil war. When Ebola broke out in 2014, it was Restless Development that worked with the next generation of young people – including 3,000 social mobilisers – to reach and build trust with communities across half the country, playing a critical role as the country put an end to the disease.
In 2019, Restless Development Sierra Leone is scaling up significantly, and is likely to more than double the scale of its operations with the delivery of two major new programmes.
ABOUT THE ROLE
This new Head of Finance role will oversee and lead the strengthening of all aspects of Restless Development Sierra Leone’s finance and operations, ensuring that the hub has world class systems, procedures, controls and people in place. The Head of Finance will also play a key leadership role in ensuring that Restless Development Sierra Leone is working to an ambitious, focussed, business model.
The Head of Finance will also work directly with the Hub Director, the Head of Hub and the Senior Programmes Manager as a key member of Restless Development Sierra Leone’s Leadership Team, and on occasion may deputise for the Hub Director.
This is an exciting but particularly demanding role. The successful candidate will have significant skills and experience, but might not necessarily be an established Head of Finance. You are likely to be a natural leader, and you will enjoy strengthening systems and processes and building teams of people around you. You might be looking to take on additional responsibility, or to develop experience in leading finance and operations in a challenging setting.
