Recruitment Drive for Kuwaiti Nationals


As an institution, the World Bank Group (WBG) is committed to hiring staff that mirror the diversity of the clients we serve and the partners we work with in more than 180 member countries around the world.

The Bank Group's recruitment policy is to hire staff of the highest caliber, on as wide a geographical basis as possible, with preference to nationals of WBG member countries or countries of operations.

To this end, the WBG is launching a Fellows Program to identify, grow and develop professionals from the Middle East and North Africa Region (MNA). The MNA Fellows Program will recruit nationals from MNA countries for immediate or future placement opportunities at the WBG headquarters in Washington, or in any of our country offices.  

Ultimately the program seeks to:  increase representation of MNA nationals at the WBG; increase the number of nationals from MNA countries selected into the WBG Young Professionals Program; and build skills of young talent in technical areas of critical importance to the development of the MNA region. Key features of the program will include mentoring and leadership development. 


Selection Criteria

The program will target highly talented and promising graduate candidates from MNA countries- with focus on nationals from Kuwait. The selection of the Fellows will be conducted in a manner consistent with the World Bank Group recruitment policies and procedures.

  • Be nationals of Kuwait.
