The CDIIN team undertakes the activities above about the infrastructure sector working closely with the Infrastructure Industry Group (CNG) and the Transaction Advisory Department (CTA). The infrastructure sector remains one of IFC’s strategic priorities, and IFC’s activities in the sector have expanded significantly over the last few years. IFC through its support for investment and advisory clients, expands the reach of services in the energy, water transport, and telecommunications sub-sectors, as well as promotes sustainable mining. The CTA team provides advisory services directly to governments by primarily working downstream to advise the government on developing, structuring, and competitively tendering PPPs.

CDIIN is looking to hire an experienced Results Measurement (RM) Specialist to join its team, based in New Delhi. The RM Specialist will provide expert advice and operational support to the CTA and INR advisory operational teams. RM Specialists work closely with operations teams to design programs and projects to track, monitor, and report on their results. The RM Specialist will ensure consistent application of standard impact measurement and monitoring frameworks, help generate relevant lessons learned and support staff incorporate such lessons into project design, provide technical support and program quality leadership to donor-funded facilities, and contribute to evaluative work beyond the project lifecycle.
