IFC Vacancy for Sr.Human Resources Officer (Job Architecture & Career Management)

The International Finance Corporation (IFC), the private sector arm of the World Bank Group, is a global leader, investor and advisor committed to projects in its developing member countries that reduce extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity. IFC finances private sector investments, mobilizes capital in the international financial markets, helps clients improve social and environmental sustainability, and provides technical assistance and advice to businesses and governments in the developing world. Private sector financial development is essential to the promotion of successful and sustainable economies in low and middle-income countries around the world. Sound and efficient financial markets can ensure that resources are allocated where they are most productive, assisting job creation and spurring economic growth. IFC’s goal is to prioritize investment in the financial sector because it promotes development in all other sectors.The IFC HR function addresses IFC specific business needs with dedicated teams. The IFC HR Programs Team (CHRPM) oversees the design and supports the implementation of improved HR processes, practices, programs, and tools. The CHRPM Team works with HR Business Partners and client departments/VPU to deliver products that meet the business needs of IFC.Driven by the need for more effective succession planning and building talent pipelines, the CHRPM team is currently leading the design and implementation of the job architecture and career framework for IFC staff.The work on career initiatives is not a one-size-fits-all, but is rather based on a very client-oriented approach: Clients define the business need(s) they seek to address with any career initiative, programs or tools, and they take great ownership in developing them. This approach leads in turn to a modus operandi where the CHRPM team must support different clients and parts of the WBG, providing consultancy, guidance, and analysis in order to develop and implement custom-fit career solutions and programs together with clients and stakeholders. The program of work includes designing the job architecture and career framework, building career paths, identifying technical and managerial competencies, facilitating career conversations, and building a career culture. The Senior Human Resources Officer, Job Architecture and Career Management will play a significant role in the development, socialization, and implementation of those career frameworks. The work program requires in-depth expertise in the areas of career management, including design of career paths, competency modeling, as well as strong client relationship management and teamwork.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.
