JOB DETAIL

Description

 

IFC — a member of the World Bank Group — is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in emerging markets. We work in more than 100 countries, using our capital, expertise, and influence to create markets and opportunities in developing countries. In fiscal year 2023, IFC committed a record US$43.7 billion to private companies and financial institutions in developing countries, leveraging the power of the private sector to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity as economies grapple with the impacts of global compounding crises. For more information, visit www.ifc.org.

IFC’s Corporate Strategy Unit (CSMCS) is a unit in the Corporate Strategy and Operations Management Department (CSMDR), reporting to the VP of Corporate Support (COSVP). CSMCS is organized around four verticals: i) Corporate Strategy ii) Operational Strategy iii) FCS/IDA Coordination and, iv) IFC-IEG (Independent Evaluation Group) Engagement.

The Corporate Strategy function leads the development and communication of IFC’s corporate strategy and produces the Strategy and Business Outlook (SBO) among other products. The Operational Strategy team is responsible for gathering intelligence, formulating operational strategies, and catalyzing conversations and initiatives. It also supports the development and implementation of WB’s Evolution Roadmap process (e.g., One WB Approach). FCS/IDA Coordination supports IFC’s implementation of the WBG FCV (Fragile, Conflict and Violence) strategy by delivering FCS focused analytics to inform decision making, sharing knowledge on IFC’s experience in FCS/IDA, and providing operations-facing support to staff engaged with FCS/IDA countries. Finally, IFC-IEG Engagement supports the complex body of engagement across three areas – strategic, thematic, and project evaluations – that result from the IEG work program. The vertical is also coordinating the reform of IFC’s accountability and learning products/methodology for investment projects (aka the” XPSR Reform” initiative).

CSMCS is looking for high performing applicants with at least eight years of relevant experience interested in contributing to various facets of the unit’s work, with a focus on the IFC-IEG Engagement vertical. The work is fast-paced and offers a corporate-level perspective for candidates looking to develop a management view of the organization, and to contribute significantly to the strategic direction of IFC. The Applicant will collaborate extensively with IFC Operations, World Bank/MIGA and IEG to ensure smooth delivery of the work program and activities related to the unit’s functions.
