OECD recruiting Investment, Competitiveness and Private Sector Policy Analysts
Paris, France, 15 October 2013
The OECD’s mission – Better Policies for Better Lives – promotes policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. It provides a unique forum in which governments work together to share experiences on what drives economic, social and environmental change, seeking solutions to common problems.
The Global Relations Secretariat (GRS) supports the implementation of the Secretary General’s strategic orientations by co-ordinating the Organisation’s relations with partner countries and with other international organisations. It advises the SG and other OECD Directorates on how to strengthen co-operation with key partner countries, regions and organisations. GRS also serves the OECD External Relations Committee, working with members to help them reach consensus on global relations priorities and ensuring that relevant partners are effectively engaged in the Organisation’s work.
GRS is looking for Policy Analysts/Project Managers to help governments develop and implement policy reforms to enhance investment, competitiveness and private sector development in selected regions. These include: (i) Central Asia, (ii) Eastern Europe and South Caucasus (Eurasia), (iii) Middle East and North Africa, (iv) South-East Europe and(v) South-East Asia.
Policy Analysts/Project Managers in these regional programmes will focus, in cooperation with relevant Directorates, on a range of issues and projects, such as:
Country competitiveness reviews with an emphasis on investment promotion, SME development, access to finance, gender, human capital development and business innovation;
Sector competitiveness focusing on barriers to investment in specific industries and recommendations to address them;
Monitoring of progress and support to the implementation of recommended reforms with the assistance of OECD experts.
