World Bank Job Fair

February 3, 2020

World Bank Headquarters, Washington, D.C.



Join us on Monday, February 3, 2020 for this special job fair to learn about over 100 exciting positions that the World Bank is looking to fill by June this year.

As part of a recruitment drive to increase its support for countries dealing with fragility, conflict and violence (FCV), the World Bank Group invites applications from qualified candidates interested in international development. The majority of positions will be located in Sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East and North Africa, South Asia, and East Asia.


Fragility, conflict, and violence (FCV) is a critical development challenge that threatens efforts to end extreme poverty, affecting both low- and middle-income countries. By 2030, FCV countries will be home to 46 percent of the world’s extreme poor.

To this end, the World Bank Group is working with other development partners to help countries stem the tide of fragility and foster peace and stability. Around the world, hundreds of World Bank Group staff are working hard to address the root drivers of fragility, for example by helping governments to develop policies to creating employment, providing economic opportunities for refugees, extending needed support for post conflict reconstruction, and making critical investments in education, health and other social services.
