Fellowship Programme - call for applications

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 Fellowship Programme of Social Finance encourages professionals with experience in insurance, microfinance and development to use their expertise to effectively provide insurance and microfinance services to low-income households and emerging customers. The objective of the 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.

The projects are expected to start in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia in the second half of 2021. Projects are contingent on the COVID-19 situation and may be delayed.

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 financial product to a digital solution, public-private partnership or distribution partnership.
