Senior Operations Officer Sustainable Forestry

IFC Indonesia
Location: Jakarta, Indonesia
Last Date: December 24, 2010


The International Finance Corporation (IFC) is the private sector arm of the World Bank Group. IFC promotes sustainable private sector investment in developing countries as a way to reduce poverty and improve people's lives. IFC offers investment products and advisory services to private sector and government clients.

IFC’s strategy in Indonesia is to combine investments and advisory services to improve the policy environment for doing business, expand access to finance for currently underserved firms and households, strengthen socially and environmentally sustainable supply chains to benefit large numbers of smallholders and SMEs (e.g. agribusiness and forestry), and build sustainable infrastructure, especially in rural areas. Addressing the challenge of climate change forms the foundation of the Sustainable Forestry program, and is also a strategic thread that is woven throughout IFC’s programs in Indonesia.

The Senior Operations Officer will implement and further develop IFC’s Sustainable Forestry program in Indonesia – a major pillar of the advisory services program. In addition, the Senior Operations Officer will serve as a regional forestry expert. The position will initially be on a two-year basis.
