The Agence Française de Développement, or French Development Agency, relies on a wide variety of professionals to implement its aid projects. These include engineers, economists, finance experts, sociologists, environment specialists and health experts.

In 2009, the agency looked for people to fill hundreds of positions in its headquarters and mission offices. There are three ways to keep track of job openings: subscribing to AFD’s job emails, answering a job ad online, and submitting an unsolicited application. In all cases, a resume and a cover letter must be included.
