International Labour Organization calls applications for ILO Social Finance Programme. The ILO’s Social Finance Programme invites applications from qualified professionals with expertise in insurance, microfinance and development for inclusion in its Fellowship Programme roster and for potential placements in Africa and Asia. The projects are expected to start at the end of 2021, although are contingent on the COVID-19 situation and may be delayed.

The Fellowship Programme

The objective of ILO Social Finance Programme is to match qualified professionals with organizations working on the frontiers of impact insurance and financial inclusion, bridge skill gaps and create a new generation of professionals with experience serving low-income populations.

Each Fellow will be placed with a host organization for at least a year to support an innovation project. The project could range from the implementation of a risk management product, public-private partnership, digital solution, or distribution partnership. The project will focus on the following themes:

  • Designing integrated risk-management solutions for small enterprises and/or low-income households that bundle insurance with other financial and non-financial services to improve consumers’ ability to manage risk and increase their productivity capabilities.
  • Enhancing public-private partnerships that help achieve public policy objectives aligned to the UN’s SDGs, especially those related to decent work, food security, climate change and universal health coverage.


Candidates must have the following criteria

  • Relevant expertise to contribute to activities related to insurance, financial inclusion and/or public private partnerships.
  • Proactive and ready to document learning experiences during the fellowship.
  • Interested in working in developing countries on development issues.
  • Seriously committed to providing inclusive financial and insurance services and practising in the field on an ongoing basis after the assignment.
  • Resourceful and capable of arranging practical necessities related to travel, life and work in a new environment.
  • Ready to work in a developing country for the duration of the fellowship.
