Senior External Affairs Officer - GPE - GG

United States of America, Washington, Washington DC - World Bank Group

Do you want to build a career that is truly worthwhile? Working at the World Bank Group provides a unique opportunity for you to help our clients solve their greatest development challenges. The World Bank Group is one of the largest sources of funding and knowledge for developing countries; a unique global partnership of five institutions dedicated to ending extreme poverty, increasing shared prosperity and promoting sustainable development. With 189 member countries and more than 120 offices worldwide, we work with public and private sector partners, investing in groundbreaking projects and using data, research, and technology to develop solutions to the most urgent global challenges. For more information, visit www.worldbank.org  BackgroundAre you a passionate advocate for education? Do you want to make a difference in the lives of children in the world's poorest countries? The Global Partnership for Education Secretariat (GPE) would like to hear from you.  Who we are GPE is a shared commitment to end the world's learning crisis. It is the only global partnership and fund dedicated entirely to helping children in lower-income countries get a quality education, so they can unlock their potential and contribute to building a better world. We bring together governments, teachers, civil society, donors, United Nations agencies, development banks, businesses and private foundations to achieve our shared vision that every child deserves to learn.    What we do GPE currently supports 76 low- and lower-middle-income countries to transform their education systems so that all children can get the education they need to thrive. We work where the needs are greatest and focus on reaching the children who are the most vulnerable, including girls, children with disabilities and those who live in countries characterized by extreme poverty or conflict.   How we work Transforming education is about creating lasting changes and achieving impact at scale. GPE's new strategic plan, GPE 2025, sets out to deliver this transformative change by convening partners, mobilizing funds and catalyzing reforms to help partner countries get more girls and boys in school, improve teaching and learning, and build equitable, inclusive and resilient education systems fit for the 21st century. Our unique approach works. Since 2002, 160 million more children in GPE partner countries have set foot in classrooms for the first time, more than half of them girls. In 2020, GPE was also the largest provider of education grants in the global COVID-19 response, rapidly providing partner countries with vital resources to ensure that learning could safely continue.   Raise Your Hand In July 2021, the Global Education Summit raised a record US$4 billion from donors for GPE's Raise Your Hand campaign. This put GPE firmly on the path to achieving its fundraising target of at least $5 billion over the next five years to transform education systems in up to 90 countries and territories. At the Summit, Heads of State and Government from partner countries made historic commitments to domestic education financing and GPE also mobilized an unprecedented number of pledges from businesses, private foundations and development banks. A fully funded GPE would enable up to 175 million children to learn and help get 88 million more girls and boys in school by 2025. In the longer term, this investment could add $164 billion to economies in GPE partner countries, lift 18 million people out of poverty, and protect 2 million girls from early marriage.   Governance and organizational arrangements The GPE Board of Directors includes ministerial-level board members and alternates representing 20 constituencies that reflect the Partnership's breadth. The Board Chair is HE President Jakaya Kikwete and the Board Vice Chair is Dr Susan Liautaud. The Board of Directors, with its three standing committees, provides policy and strategic oversight and approves or delegates funding decisions. The GPE Secretariat, with over 120 employees and hosted by the World Bank, is responsible for translating the policies and strategies set by the Board into practical support for partner countries, coordinating with diverse stakeholders and galvanizing global support for SDG4. The Secretariat's headquarters are in the World Bank's offices in Washington, D.C. and the European office is in Paris with a satellite office in Brussels. This is an international recruitment subject to compensation on the local pay scale for the selected duty station, and global mobility benefits may apply as per World Bank Group policy.  Job DescriptionGPE is looking for two dynamic individuals to lead the Global Advocacy Team. The team is made up of six full-time professionals supported by a small number of consultants and operations colleagues.  It sits within the External Relations Team and promotes the importance of education to sustainable development outcomes and GPE's added value in the global education sector.

He or she will drive GPE's advocacy and strategy work to build political will and financial support to transform education systems in GPE partner countries. The Deputy Team Lead, based in either Paris, France (preferred) or Washington DC, will support the Team Lead in the above, and act as deputy when needed. She or he will also ideally lead GPE's global and regional advocacy work in Europe working closely with external relations colleagues, particularly in donor relations.While the business preference is for the team lead to be co-located with the CEO, currently in Washington DC, and the deputy to be based in Paris, we are open to alternative considerations.  Both positions would be expected to travel regularly between the offices.   Duties and Accountabilities?
