Junior Analyst - Public Financial Management reform (Swiss Youth Programme - UNYV)

Colombia, Bogota D.C., Bogotá - World Bank

[The World Bank Group (WBG)](https://www.worldbank.org/en/home) is one of the world's largest sources of funding and knowledge for developing countries. It uses financial resources and extensive experience to help our client countries reduce poverty, increase economic growth, and improve quality of life.    The Government of Colombia (GoC) has been working for over a decade in a sustained effort to reform its Public Financial Management (PFM) institutions and practices. With support from international agencies including the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) in Switzerland and the World Bank, significant progress has been made in terms of strengthening the institutional framework for PFM and the ongoing adoption of international tools such as the latest IMF's Government Finance Statistics Manual. However, several challenges remain. The fragmentation and, in some cases, overlap of governance functions still hinders a more fluid flow of financial data and a more streamlined management of public finances. Moreover, several studies have identified difficulties such as increased budget inflexibility, very limited use of performance information in the budget process and limitations in terms of transparency arising from informal practices used to bypass the rigid budget processes.   Your tasks and responsibilities as Junior Analyst - Public Financial Management reform: - Support the implementation of specific projects and activities related to the 'Strengthening Public Financial Management' Program in Colombia. This will involve consolidating and analysing information, reviewing policy documents, assisting the coordination of tasks and activities, and drafting meeting minutes; - Support the World Bank team in reviewing and consolidating information on international institutional arrangements, standards and practices relevant to the PFM reform in Colombia in areas such as budgeting, investment management, treasury, accounting and multi-level coordination for PFM; - Provide feedback and recommendations on the implementation of the 'Strengthening Public Financial Management' Program in Colombia ; - Contribute to the overall implementation of the 'Strengthening Public Financial Management' Program in Colombia.   Part of the Talent programme ['Swiss Youth at the World Bank'](https://www.cinfo.ch/en/individuals/find-a-job/junior-professional-programmes/talent-programme-swiss-youth-at-the-united-nations-world-bank/talent-programme-swiss-youth-at-the-world-bank), this position is sponsored by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).
