Do you want to build a career that is truly worthwhile? Working at the World Bank provides a unique opportunity for you to help our clients solve their greatest development challenges. The World Bank consists of two entities – the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA). It is a global development cooperative owned by 189 member countries. As the largest development bank in the world, the World Bank provides loans, guarantees, risk management products, and advisory services to middle-income and creditworthy low-income countries, and coordinates responses to regional and global challenges.

Middle East and North Africa (MNA) Region

The Middle East and North Africa (MNA) Region serves twenty countries, of which a number are active IBRD or IDA borrowers/recipients, while others are users of non-lending services, which the Region provides on either a reimbursable or a non-reimbursable basis. The MNA Region aims to foster sustainable growth with a framework based on four main pillars —renewing the social contract, regional cooperation, resilience to Internally Displaced People (IDP)/ refugee shocks, and recovery and reconstruction.

Historic political and economic changes continue to reshape the Region, with the pace and nature of change differing widely across countries. This dynamic and demanding environment offers the opportunity to contribute to innovative solutions in response to the challenges faced by many of the Region's countries. 

The CMU (MNC01) consists of four countries:  Tunisia, Morocco, Libya and Algeria and spans its engagement in and around these countries, through a combination of lending and technical assistance in most of these countries, all underpinned by a strong multifaceted policy dialogue.
