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
We are looking for a passionate young feminist researcher to design and coordinate the research for our upcoming State of Youth Civil Society Report ‘Feminist and Fearless: Holding the Line’.
The State of Youth Civil Society Report is an annual global, youth-led publication that explores the new realities that youth civil society and social movements are experiencing. The 2023 report will explore the role of young feminist organisations and collectives in challenging rising authoritarianism and democratic backsliding in their countries. The report will spotlight the creative strategies and resistance from feminist youth movements, and how young people are pushing back against harmful ideologies and the shrinking civic space.
As the lead research consultant for this report you will have an opportunity to connect and collaborate with powerful and inspiring young feminists, youth organisations and movements around the world, to understand the biggest issues impacting feminist youth movements who are at the frontlines of democratic struggles.
NOTE: While this is a consultancy role, Restless Development is open to the possibility of this role transitioning to a more permanent position within the agency to deliver on our global Gender and Sexual Rights priority area – subject to budget availability.

Identify as a young feminist and has had previous engagement with or participation in feminist youth movements

Ability to effectively tailor and communicate research findings to different audiences
