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 1) a broader product offering to engage earlier in the project cycle and secure opportunities; 2) a greater focus on preparing clients in nascent markets and sectors for investment; 3) a greater focus on value addition and risk management of portfolio investment clients to enhance their performance; and 4) a longer time horizon and a more patient, longer-term perspective.
To drive this approach, IFC is seeking an Operations Officer to join the Manufacturing, Agribusiness, and Services (MAS) department in the IFC Office in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The Operations Officer will be responsible for providing project management and client engagement support to Upstream & Advisory projects in the agribusiness sector in Ethiopia and other countries in the Eastern Africa sub-region. This will include supporting IFC?s efforts to enable investment opportunities, enhance investment outcomes, and improve investment conditions in the agribusiness sector.
