We work in more than 100 countries, using our capital, expertise, and influence to create markets and opportunities. Our mission is to leverage the power of the private sector to end extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity on a livable planet.

We are looking to hire a Communications Analyst to oversee digital communications for IFC in Asia Pacific.

The right candidate will be highly organized, and a good team player. He/she is expected to travel, as needed to effectively perform his/her role.

The Communications Officer will be an integral member of the Regional Communications Unit. This Unit works closely with Corporate and Industry communications teams to advance business development and communicate IFC’s impact in regions of coverage. The Unit engages with IFC’s stakeholders – companies and businesses, development partners, civil society, and others – to promote projects that show IFC’s leadership and innovation as the premier partner of choice for the private sector in emerging and developing economies. The Regional Communications Unit collaborates alongside counterparts within the World Bank Group. 

The position will report to the Head of Communications, Asia Pacific, and will be based in New Delhi, India.

  • Content development: Aligned with IFC’s corporate digital guidelines, create and publish high-quality digital content on IFC’s social media channels and support cross-promotion of IFC’s content on external partner channels. Day-to-day, this will involve crafting posts and designing visuals to support IFC content in Asia Pacific (press releases, impact stories, videos, media interviews, reports, and others). Create an engaging monthly newsletter on communications activities in the region, as well as summary reports for high-level visits. 
  • Technical and advisory support: Advise IFC teams on digital trends and provide regular internal digital training to increase social media content quality and help teams understand trends and best practices.
