Devex recently asked our network of international development recruiters to make their predictions for upcoming career trends. More than 100 recruiters participated in the “Devex Career Trends in 2015” survey, providing insight into where their organizations anticipate the most job opportunities will be and what kinds of global development professionals will be in demand in the coming year.

Consulting firms made up nearly half of respondents, followed by international NGOs, international organizations and local NGOs. Respondents’ organizations were based in more than 25 different countries, from Colombia to Germany, though the majority are headquartered in the United States.
