Senior Program Specialist

Supporting Inclusive Growth

Cairo, Egypt



The goal of the Supporting Inclusive Growth (SIG) Program is to support rigorous and policy-oriented research that generates new insights and options for promoting policies that facilitate inclusive growth. The program focuses on two thematic areas: the enhancement of enterprise development, entrepreneurship and innovation; and the facilitation of growth with decent jobs.



As the Senior Program Specialist, reporting to the SIG Program Leader in Ottawa and the Regional Director in Cairo, you will be part of a dynamic and collaborative multi-disciplinary team. You will take the lead in developing, managing, monitoring, reporting on and evaluating a portfolio of research projects in the Middle Eastern and North African region. You will also interact with experts in the field and represent IDRC in a variety of fora, draw attention to new developments in economic policies and research, and play a key role in the progress of strategic thinking in this area. Furthermore, you will collaborate with the other IDRC Programs to realize synergies in IDRC efforts to inform ongoing political and economic transitions in the region.



The current portfolio of research projects promote inclusive growth, including labour market issues, institutional frameworks for investment, competition and entrepreneurial activity, and the role of social protection policies. Over the past few years, research and research capacity have been supported across the region in the fields of entrepreneurship, small firms, market regulation, competition policy, and women’s economic empowerment. Future programming will build on these strengths and ensure that IDRC research funding is supporting key development challenges and opportunities in the region.
