Working with us at African Development Bank
The African Development Bank (AfDB) Group's mission is to help reduce poverty, improve living conditions for Africans and mobilize resources for the continent's economic and social development. With this objective in mind, the institution aims at assisting African countries - individually and collectively - in their efforts to achieve sustainable economic development and social progress. Combating poverty is at the heart of the continent's efforts to attain sustainable economic growth. To this end, the Bank seeks to stimulate and mobilize internal and external resources to promote investments as well as provide its regional member countries with technical and financial assistance.
The institution's greatest assets are its human resources which come from a wide geographic area. The Bank is an equal opportunity employer and firmly believes that recruitment from a wide geographical and cultural spectrum enriches the institution with varied talents, experiences and skills that will enhance the quality of human resources management and ultimately the realization of the Bank's mission of reducing poverty across the continent.
One of our greatest assets is our diversity and we are bound by shared values, committed to our mission and proud to be a leading development finance institution on the continent. While our size and range of business activities mean we have many different kinds of jobs and working environments, you will find the most important things that make us who we are right across our organization.
Management is committed to ensuring fair representation of all member countries on the Bank's staffing.
