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