IFC is seeking an Investment Officer (IO) to support our upstream/pre-investment work in the infrastructure sector in the LAC region, with a particular focus on Brazil and the southern cone. The IO will drive the pre-investment unit’s efforts to enable investment opportunities by (i) incubating high-impact projects that require early-stage development and pre-investment support together with private sector clients leading to an IFC investment, (ii) getting potential clients ready for IFC investment through client preparation and development, (iii) supporting business development in coordination with the investment team to identify opportunities with private companies in the relevant infrastructure sector, and (iv) identifying opportunities to work with the World Bank to tackle regulatory and sector bottlenecks that prevent the flow of private capital into productive investments.
The position will be under the supervision of the Regional Upstream and Advisory Manager based in Mexico City and is expected to coordinate their work closely with the Brazil and Southern Cone regional investment lead and other sector leads as needed. The candidate will be based in Sao Paulo.
