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 $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.
The IFC 3.0 strategy aims to stimulate more investment activity across emerging markets, especially in Low Income Countries (LICs) and Fragile and Conflict affected States (FCS). This strategy aims to create new opportunities for private investments in riskier markets and sectors by proactively working “upstream” to create, deepen, and expand markets and design and develop potential investment projects. Achieving these growth and impact ambitions at scale requires a different approach to business development, deal sourcing, and client support that relies on: i) a broader product offering to engage earlier in the project cycle and secure opportunities; ii) a greater focus on preparing clients in nascent markets and sectors for investment; iii) a greater focus on value addition and risk management of portfolio investment clients to enhance their performance; and iv) a longer time horizon and a more patient, longer-term perspective.
To drive this approach, IFC is seeking an Investment Officer to join the Manufacturing, Agribusiness and Services department in the IFC Office in Kigali, Rwanda or Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The Investment Officer will be responsible for supporting IFC’s efforts to enable investment opportunities, enhance investment outcomes, and improve investment conditions in Agribusiness sectors across the Eastern Africa region.
In this role, the Investment officer will work in closely with Country, Regional, Investment, Upstream & Advisory teams across the institution to support IFC’s strategic and business objectives.
