Make a Difference: Embark on Your Journey of Professional Fulfillment

Much like poverty, excellence has no borders. That’s why we are always on the look-out for bright and talented individuals from around the world – people who are inspired, inspiring and interested in doing everything they can to reduce global poverty.


The International Finance Corporation (IFC), the private sector arm of the World Bank Group, promotes sustainable private sector investment in developing countries as a way to reduce poverty and improve people’s lives. In addition to providing long-term financing to clients, IFC also provides a wide range of advisory services to support private sector development in member countries.


IFC and other World Bank Group bodies work in all areas of development, from strategic advice to creating public-private development partnerships, from urban transport to agribusiness and food safety, from streamlining business regulations to microfinance and small business loans, from building schools and hospitals to residential energy efficiency improvements, and much more (learn more about IFC projects here, and about World Bank Group work here).


As a result, we are not just looking for investment and corporate finance professionals, but talented, ambitious people across a range of fields, including:


Agribusiness, Health and Education, Sanitation, Nutrition, Urban & Rural Development, Infrastructure, Transportation, Oil, Gas and Mining, Telecommunications, Transportation, Engineering, SME Banking, Trade, Corporate Finance, Investment, Climate, Natural Resources, Sustainable Development, Energy, Governance, Risk Management, Conflict and Fragile States, Gender, Youth, Justice, Inclusion, Accounting, IT, Human Resources, Communications, and Law.  


We are proud to employ a dedicated and committed workforce that’s diverse in gender, nationality, and ethnicity. What qualities and skills do we look for?


IFC/World Bank staff members typically have strong academic backgrounds, a broad understanding of development issues, and international work experience. Our diversity reflects the bank's global membership, bringing a wide range of perspectives to bear on our poverty reduction work.


IFC and the World Bank employ experienced professionals with at least 2-5 years of relevant experience and a record of achievement.  In addition to proficiency in English, language skills are often required in Arabic, Chinese, French, Portuguese, Russian, or Spanish.
