MIGA is a member of the World Bank Group and our mission is to promote foreign direct investment into developing countries to support economic growth, reduce poverty, and improve people’s lives. We do this through providing political risk insurance, or guarantees, to investors and lenders, against losses caused by noncommercial risks.

The MIGA Professionals Program was introduced in 2009 to attract new and diverse talent to the agency to work in an entry-level professional position for a non-renewable term of two years. This program is open to applicants under 35 years of age with an advanced degree and a minimum of five years working experience in the relevant field. Opportunities are available in:

  • Underwriting
  • Financial accounting and reporting
  • Economics and risk management, including environmental and social risk mitigation

Selected candidates will be assigned to one of MIGA’s department to work as a full member of the team. In exchange for your hard work and commitment, MIGA offers an entrepreneurial-based culture, a dynamic learning environment, a competitive salary, World Bank Group benefits, and coaching and mentoring for program participants. All positions are based in MIGA’s offices in Washington, DC. Women and individuals from developing countries, particularly from sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean countries are encouraged to apply.
