IFC Communications Consultant Job in Nairobi Kenya

IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in developing countries. We create opportunity for people to escape poverty and improve their lives. We do so by providing financing to help businesses employ more people and supply essential services, by mobilizing capital from others, and by delivering advisory services to ensure sustainable development.

IFC’s Climate Change Investment Program for Africa (CIPA) is working to unlock vast unrealized potential for sustainable energy finance on the continent. It aims to do this by catalyzing a market for investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.
CIPA provides combined advisory and investment services to financial institutions to help them enter a new lending market. Because access to finance is not the only precursory and enabling factor for investment in sustainable energy, CIPA also works on local capacity building and awareness-raising as well as policy engagement.

To help achieve its objectives, CIPA is seeking an experienced Communications Consultant to lead the communications and media relations activities.

The scope of work includes: leading in the overall execution of a communications strategy: developing a communications baseline and M&E framework; promoting effective internal communications and writing: and producing and disseminating original material.

The position is based in Nairobi and requires at least 5 years professional experience in a public relations or communications role including other relevant experience: relevant academic qualifications at post-graduate level, a proven track record of delivering high-quality output in a timely fashion; excellent writing and editing skills, which will be verified during the application process; experience in working in sub-Saharan Africa, a well-developed network of media contacts in Sub-Saharan Africa, particularly in Kenya and South Africa: and fluency in English and preferably French.

IFC offers a challenging, multicultural environment and attractive conditions.
