  • Lead the support for innovation pilot projects and ensure coordination, innovation and structured collection and analysis of lessons learned;
  • Test new ways of working with/for youth and integrate this in the on-going refinement of our Global Platform concept;
  • Lead the development and coordination of the social innovation cultivator project to ensure AADKs innovation project have a wide outreach to alternative and strategic partners;  
  • Be the ambassador for the process of generating new ideas/projects, driven by our partners in the field while facilitating and creating innovation competences / mindset in the organization; 
  • Ensure mechanisms for measuring outcomes and capturing lessons learnt from innovation pilots are updated and adjusted;
 
The job requires that you have:   
  • Minimum 3 years of relevant practical experience in one or more of the following:
  • Solid experience in innovation and agile project management, taking prototypes to scale while collaborating with several partners at the same time;  
  • Solid experience of different approaches to empowerment, campaigning, activism and mobilization of youth, including working with or within volunteering; 
  • Experience with business development within social movements and/or smaller startup organizations;  
  • Experience from a coordinating role and an ability to set the agenda quickly while ensuring a systematic and thorough completion of ongoing projects;  
  • Full proficiency in English;  
  • Have completed a University degree within a relevant field, i.e. entrepreneurship, project management or social science.
 
And it is great if you have: 
  • Experience from working with youth-led activism and organising on a global scale, within education and capacity development, preferably within projects with a political agenda; 
  • Experience from collaborating with people in geographically different locations; 
  • Experience from working in developing countries and/or in a global/intercultural work environment;   
  • Experience from working within a civil society organization, social movement and/or the international development sector; 
 
It is a prerequisite that you are led by a creative and innovative mindset, and that you have the courage to take lead on new initiatives. You dare exploring untraditional approaches and thinking, while keeping a structured overview of the ongoing projects. In addition, you are respecting and genuinely valuing others – also if they have a different background or approach than you.

  • An 8-year fixed-term appointment with flexible working hours, so that a healthy balance between private- family- and worklife is possible;  
  • A comprehensive compensation package where salary and employment conditions are in accordance with the agreement between AADK and the AC organizations;
