Description
Do you want to build a career that is truly worthwhile? Working at the World Bank provides a unique opportunity for you to help our clients solve their greatest development challenges. The World Bank consists of two entities – the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA). It is a global development cooperative owned by 189 member countries. As the largest development bank in the world, the World Bank provides loans, guarantees, risk management products, and advisory services to middle-income and creditworthy low-income countries, and coordinates responses to regional and global challenges.

The Finance, Competitiveness and Innovation (FCI) Global Practice combines expertise in the financial sector with expertise in private sector development to foster private-sector led growth and help create markets in client countries. FCI’s core lines of business are: (a) Financial Stability & Integrity; (b) Financial Inclusion, Infrastructure & Access; (c) Firm Capabilities & Innovation; (d) Long-Term Finance; (e) Climate & Risk Management; (f) Markets and Technology; and (g) Investment and Competition.

With the largest economy and population in the East Africa Community (EAC), Tanzania is quickly approaching middle-income status but struggling to improve economic productivity that would create enough jobs for its fast-growing youth population. Transformation to a more modern industrialized economy that would accelerate job growth and higher incomes requires the strengthening of investment climate and conducive government policies for increasing private investment and entrepreneurship. Support to financially inclusive, gender-empowered private sector growth agenda is enshrined in the SCD and CPF, and at the heart of EFI and FCI dialogue with the authorities, which are demanding increasing assistance from FCI on this agenda. With 2020 being a year of national elections, the timing is critical to support the client’s commitment to structural reforms necessary to unlock economic growth, by strengthening the Bank’s engagement and expert resources around financial and private sector development and competitiveness issues.
