Do you want to build a career that is truly worthwhile? Working at the World Bank provides a unique opportunity for you to help our clients solve their greatest development challenges. The World Bank consists of two entities – the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the International Development Association (IDA). It is a global development cooperative owned by 189 member countries. As the largest development bank in the world, the World Bank provides loans, guarantees, risk management products, and advisory services to middle-income and creditworthy low-income countries, and coordinates responses to regional and global challenges.

The Consultative Group to Assist the Poor (CGAP) is a global multi-donor partnership dedicated to advancing financial inclusion for the poor. CGAP plays a unique role as a donor-coordination mechanism for funders working to improve the lives of poor people through the power of financial inclusion, providing a valuable platform for information, dialogue and reflection to advance progress towards a collective vision. Using action-oriented research, CGAP tests, learns and disseminates knowledge intended to help build inclusive and responsible financial systems that move people out of poverty, protect their assets and advance broader global development goals.  CGAP leverages its relationships with businesses, governments and the non-profit sector to share insights, mitigate risks and protect customers, and help others bring solutions to scale.   CGAP serves as a global advocate for the financial inclusion community by collaborating with strategic institutions that influence policy and market development and providing evidence-based research and practical lessons that guide their work. For more information, please visit https://www.cgap.org/

CGAP is supported by more than 30 partners including bilateral and multilateral development agencies, development finance institutions and private foundations committed to advancing financial access for the poor.  CGAP is housed in and administered by the World Bank.  

CGAP is guided by a five-year strategy and annual workplans. The current five-year strategy, CGAP VI, covers the period July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2023 and is built on a theory of change (ToC) that has identified four collective outcomes:

  • Customers have information, incentives, trust, confidence and networks to participate in the financial system.
  • Providers offer affordable, responsible, and accessible financial solutions for poor people that are sustainable and at scale.
  • An infrastructure that enables ubiquitous, efficient, open and safe markets is in place.
  • A policy and regulatory framework for responsible financial inclusion is in place and enforced.

Beyond work with its core partners, CGAP also provides industry-level support to share knowledge and scale impact.  This will include improving global learning on impact evidence, supporting CGAP’s members, and focusing on capacity development to scale learning with providers and policymakers.

Implementation of CGAP VI is carried out by the Operational Team through a “portfolio of projects” designed to achieve the high-level collective outcomes articulated in the theory of change.
