BACKGROUND / GENERAL DESCRIPTION:
 

IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in emerging markets. Working with 2,000 businesses worldwide, we use our six decades of experience to create opportunity where it’s needed most. In FY16, our long-term investments in developing countries rose to nearly $19 billion, leveraging our capital, expertise and influence to help the private sector end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity.

The Cross-Cutting Advisory Solutions Department is managing and delivering expertise and programs which are cross-cutting in nature and have application across the Corporation. These include public-private partnership transactions, clean energy and resources efficiency, SME development, corporate finance, gender and multidisciplinary business solutions. The department also provides administrative and financial management support to all advisory units in IFC and in the joint World Bank Group Global Practices.

Energy & Resource Efficiency (E&RE) is a part of IFC’s Cross-Industry Advisory Solutions division: supports clients to optimize access to reliable, cost-effective energy, address resource availability risk, and manage production more efficiently to minimize losses and costs. The team works on issues ranging from power generation, transmission and distribution, to off-grid energy access, and resource efficiency (including energy, water, and raw materials). They also provide market intelligence and innovative business models to vendors and project developers through advisory programs.

The MENA regional advisory program will focus on unlocking opportunities for the private sector in clean and renewable energy. The approach to do so will heavily rely on improving the investment climate for clean energy, which includes various factors such as the regulatory environment, technical issues such as grid conditions, and legal issues such as project contracts among many others. In most MENA countries, the clean energy market is as yet immature, and requires various levels of improvements in order to attract bankable and sustainable investment. As a result a significant proportion of the regional program work will include actively addressing those barriers, which also requires leveraging various stakeholders, government agencies, and partners including World Bank, MIGA, other departments in IFC, private sector investors, other multilateral financial institutions, and associations. The balance of effort of the program will focus on directly supporting clients and investors in the markets in which we work, in order to demonstrate tangible results.

Note: If the selected candidate is a current Bank Group staff member with a Regular or Open-Ended appointment, s/he will retain his/her Regular or Open-Ended appointment. All others will be offered a 2 year term appointment.

DUTIES AND ACCOUNTABILITIES:
Reporting to the MENA E&RE Regional Lead, the MENA Senior Energy Specialist (the “Specialist”) will support the Regional Lead in the responsibility and accountability for engaging with clients and delivering a focused E&RE work program with specific focus on power and utility sectors aligned with investment priorities. The Specialist will support the Regional Lead on Program Management for the MENA Power Advisory Program and provide expertise across the global E&RE team as needed, as well as to Investment departments on an as needed basis.Read More | Apply Online
