Several Energy Investment and Finance Analysts, Paris, France 386 views

The OECD is a global economic forum working with 36 member countries and more than 100 emerging and developing economies to make better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The Organisation provides a unique forum in which governments work together to share experiences on what drives economic, social and environmental change, seeking solutions to common problems.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an intergovernmental organisation committed to advancing security of energy supply, economic growth and environmental sustainability through energy policy co-operation. The IEA operates as an autonomous body within the framework of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. Both the OECD and the IEA seek opportunities to work with an increasing number of non-members of growing importance to the world economy (countries beyond IEA). The Agency aims to foster the contribution of the energy sector to economic development and environmental sustainability across the globe.

IEA work on energy investment focuses on quantifying and understanding the drivers and challenges facing energy investments today and those required in the years ahead, providing policy advice to governments and engaging with the financial community. Investment plays a prominent role in the IEA Clean Energy Transitions Programme (CETP) – a large, new IEA programme that will expand the Agency’s direct work with major emerging economies on clean energy implementation, funded by a group of IEA member countries across four years from 2018 to 2021. It encompasses technical collaboration, policy review and guidance, training and exchange programmes, primarily targeting major emerging economies (e.g. China, India and countries in Southeast Asia, Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa).

The IEA is seeking one or more Energy Investment and Finance Analysts to join the Investment Team within the Energy Supply and Investment Outlooks Division. The analysts would support the Agency’s efforts in the economic and financial analysis of energy investments, and in the implementation of effective policies, regulations, market design and financial approaches. The analysts would support and contribute to the publication of the IEA’s flagship World Energy Investment and World Energy Outlook reports as well as other investment-related works.
