Job Description

General Background

The OEC: The Organisation of Educational Cooperation (OEC) is an international intergovernmental organisation, founded in January 2020 by countries from across the Global South, to “contribute to the equitable, just, and prosperous social transformation of societies by promoting balanced and inclusive education, in order to attain the fundamental rights to liberty, justice, dignity, sustainability, social cohesion, and material and immaterial security for the peoples of the world”.

The CLUB: The Common Leveraging Union of Borrowers (CLUB) - a key instrument of the OEC - is an innovative solution to the several challenges and constraints faced today by sovereign borrowers in the Global South. The CLUB is a union of borrowing countries (OEC Member States) which have combined forces to jointly apply for development loans, oversee the national... utilisation of the loan funds, and repay the borrowed amounts. This novel approach, which seeks to be operational in the next two years, has numerous potential benefits for low-income borrowers, including unhindered access to debt instruments, enhanced bargaining power in loan negotiations, and incentives for effective loan utilisation. The CLUB is hosted within the broader OEC organisation and is managed directly by the OEC's Department of Financing for Development (FINDEV).

The main functions of FINDEV are to:

a. provide technical and policy support to Member States in developing context appropriate frameworks for the implementation of sustainable public private partnerships

b. host and support the Common Leveraging Union of Borrowers (CLUB)

c. collectively secure more favourable financing and debt relief for the CLUB members

d. reinforce the case and actively advocate for a more equitable international financial system considering the interests of Member States.
