The Bank Information Center (BIC) is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Washington, DC that advocates for transparency, accountability, sustainability, and inclusion in development finance. We partner with civil society in developing and transition countries to monitor and influence the policies and operations of the World Bank Group and other Multilateral Development Banks (MDB). In partnership with international, regional, and local civil society organizations (CSOs), BIC conducts research and advocacy aimed at reforming and improving MDB policy and practices. BIC is not a part of any MDB and does not receive funding from any MDB or government.
BIC seeks a Senior Associate with experience in public health and an interest in International Financial Institutions (IFIs) to support BIC’s work on the World Bank’s health sector lending and the Global Financing Facility (GFF). This person will work as part of BIC’s Social Inclusion team, focused on the impact of IFI projects on historically marginalized groups. While the Senior Associate’s primary focus will be on the health sector, the Senior Associate may support the Social Inclusion team on marginalized groups in other sectors, such as education or infrastructure. We are looking for a smart, proactive individual with excellent research, writing and communication skills. Under the direction of the Social Inclusion Director, the Senior Associate will identify advocacy opportunities to push for inclusion in the GFF and at the World Bank, review World Bank financing and work with civil society groups in the Global South to monitor World Bank projects, and work with other CSOs advocating on health, and other sectors as relevant, at the IFIs to push for greater inclusion, stakeholder engagement, and access to project benefits for marginalized groups.
Salary between $52,000-$58,000 USD per year depending on qualifications. BIC also provides paid health insurance, generous leave and other benefits. The position will be based in BIC’s Washington, DC office.
Please send a resume, cover letter and writing sample by May 25th, 2020. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for an initial phone interview. Preferred start date is late June.
