"The World Bank Group: Employment opportunities for young and motivated individuals"
A Webinar for Heinz Students in HBH-1202

Presenter: Roberto Amorosino, Senior HR Specialist, Talent Acquisition, The World Bank Group, Washington DC

The World Bank Group has set two goals for the world to achieve by 2030:
• End extreme poverty by decreasing the percentage of people living on less than $1.90 a day to no more than 3%.
• Promote shared prosperity by fostering the income growth of the bottom 40% for every country.

The World Bank Group is a vital source of financial and technical assistance to developing countries around the world. We are not a bank in the ordinary sense but a unique partnership to reduce poverty and support development. The World Bank Group comprises five institutions (IBRD, IDA, IFC, MIGA, ICSID) managed by their member countries. Established in 1944, the World Bank Group is headquartered in Washington, D.C.
he World Bank Group staff have the opportunity to define and seek their own career aspirations. Staff members typically have strong academic backgrounds, a broad understanding of development issues, and international work experience. Our diversity reflects the Bank's global membership, bringing a wide range of perspectives to bear on our poverty reduction work. Build a career that is truly worthwhile with the World Bank Group, the world’s leading international development organization.

The Bank is continually looking for experienced professionals with a demonstrated record of professional and academic achievement. A broad understanding of development issues and international work experience, preferably at the policy level, is extremely beneficial. In addition to proficiency in English, language skills are often required in Arabic, Chinese, French, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish. We have a multi-disciplinary staff of more than 10,000 employees from more than 170 countries specializing in economics, public policy, international finance, education, energy, social sciences, environmental sciences, and many, many other fields. Our headquarters are in Washington, D.C., but more than a third of our staff is based in 100+ regional country offices worldwide.

A career with us is born of the Bank’s business imperative: to respond to ever-changing development needs by leveraging existing skills of Bank staff and deploying them alongside those of “best-in-market” new hires and recruits.
