You’ll have an opportunity to hone your skills and acquire new ones while gaining first-hand exposure to the challenges of reducing poverty and boosting shared prosperity.
Your experience as a JPA may be used as a steppingstone to a career in government, consulting, the private sector, academia or other development agencies.
