Why are you seek­ing to re­cruit more Sub Sa­ha­ran Africans to work at IFC ?

The Africa Report - - THE QUESTION - Sér­gio Pi­menta, Vice Pres­i­dent for the Mid­dle East and Africa IFC

While IFC’S tal­ent pool is strong, we need to in­crease our fo­cus on at­tract­ing, de­vel­op­ing and re­tain­ing staff from the re­gion and cre­at­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for them across IFC. In the com­ing years, IFC ex­pects to grow even faster in the world’s most chal­leng­ing mar­kets. We will ben­e­fit from hav­ing a di­verse work­force that knows these mar­kets well. We also want to cre­ate ca­reer paths that al­low Africans to gain ex­pe­ri­ence in other parts of the world, to share the knowl­edge from this re­gion, and bring back that global knowl­edge over the course of their ca­reers. To this end, we have re­cently launched a re­cruit­ment drive aimed to at­tract na­tion­als of Sub-sa­ha­ran and Caribbean coun­tries. We are plan­ning to ll po­si­tions in oper­a­tions across the re­gional hubs in Africa as well as in other re­gions. We are also look­ing for staff to ll po­si­tions in busi­ness and cor­po­rate sup­port func­tions. I en­cour­age pro­fes­sion­als to ap­ply for po­si­tions at IFC if you feel you would t well into the mis­sion of cre­at­ing mar­kets and tak­ing on the de­vel­op­ment chal­lenges, and if you want global ca­reers in the emerg­ing mar­kets where you would be priv­i­leged to make a dif­fer­ence.

We want to wel­come more Africans to our teams and of­fer them ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties.
