Over the next three years, the International Financial Corporation will be hiring for more than 600 new positions. Professionals from a finance or business background are the “bread and butter” of the institution, with around 70% of hires expected to fit investment banker profiles or similar, explained Rudy Perecin Mareno, talent attraction officer. IFC looks for people with strong skills in financial modeling, market analysis, and diplomacy, he added.
Every project requires a range of skills, so there are also opportunities for professionals from different backgrounds, including ICT, human resources, and budgeting, he continued. By 2030, one of IFC’s goals is for 35% of its portfolio to be in climate-related activities, such as wind, solar, and hydroelectric, so this is also an area of opportunity.
