The Young Professionals Program (YPP) is a three year leadership opportunity for the development of Bank’s future leaders. We attract highly qualified and motivated professionals from our member countries for a productive and rewarding career path in development. Through the YPP, the Bank ensures continuity and excellence in both the management of its work programs and the provision of policy advice to its regional member countries.
We expect to offer this opportunity to 30 candidates for the 2018 cohort.
The Bank is an equal opportunity employer. To this end, we are committed to achieving and maintaining a diverse workforce that reflects our diversity agenda, including gender, geographies and languages, among others.
The African Development Bank’s Strategy for 2013–2022 reflects the aspirations of the entire African continent. It is firmly rooted in a deep understanding and experience of how far Africa has come in the last decade, and where it wishes to go to in the next.
This strategy places the Bank on a path to maintain its role as a key player in Africa’s quest to achieve substantial economic development and social cohesion (Inclusive Growth), while promoting the sustainable use of all natural resources (Green Growth).
The twin objectives are supported by five operational priorities and three areas of cross-cutting emphasis (fragile states, food security and gender) in which the Bank has comparative advantage and trust.
The Bank seeks to position itself at the ‘center of Africa’s transformation’.
