Source – ODI Fellowship
The ODI Fellowship is launched to give early-career economists and statisticians the chance to work as public sector civil servants. Fellows will be on a two-year contract located in countries like Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, the Pacific, and the Western Balkans. The scheme provides host institutions in these countries with high-caliber professionals to fill pressing skills gaps, while offering Fellows the experience of working inside bureaucracies in a different country context to their own.
What’s in it for you?
