The Restitution Foundation began around 20 years ago to mobilise and motivate individuals to embark on journeys of restitution that tackle race-based privilege and result in a just and hopeful society. During this time, they have tried many strategies under the leadership of a gifted and creative director who has now moved on to a new challenge. After a re-envisioning process they are, for the next five years, focussing our effort on two constituencies: young people and business people in order to build a restitution movement. Doing more with less, they are committed to experiential education, action- oriented dialogue, and empowering support aimed at achieving a just and inclusive country.
The Restitution Foundation seeks to appoint a Mobiliser-in-Chief to be based in Cape Town.
The purpose of this position is to find an independent, driven and passionate young person to shape and lead experiential learning, action-riented dialogue, and empowering support projects that guide young people and business professionals to be part of social restitution in South Africa.
- Gather together the right people and resources (including financial support) to achieve the Foundation’s aims,
- Design strategic activities and processes to help us meet our target audience,
- Communicate effectively in order to ensure support for the movement and increase its impact in our country.
What they offer:
- Subject matter experts as board members
- A plethora of resources to draw on and the freedom to design new materials
- A network of incredible people and partners to cultivate and inspire
- A salary based on your qualifications and experience within the NGO environment and with encouragement to study further, reflect and take occasional sabbaticals.
