Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank Sydney, Australia
Posted 4 hours ago Permanent Competitive
Investment Operations Specialist - Urban The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) is a multilateral development bank whose mission is financing the Infrastructure for Tomorrow with sustainability at its core. We began operations in Beijing in January 2016 and have since grown to 109 approved Members worldwide. We are capitalized up to USD100 billion and AAA-rated by the major international credit rating agencies. Working with partners, AIIB meets clients' needs by unlocking new capital and investing in infrastructure that is green, technology-enabled and promotes regional connectivity.
AIIB's Investment Operations are composed of two regional teams, 1 and 2. Each regional team is led by a Vice President (VP) and reporting staff includes technical specialists and bankers. Region 1 is responsible for South East Asia, the Pacific Islands and South Asia (except Pakistan and Afghanistan), while Region 2 covers Pakistan, Afghanistan, Central Asia, East Asia, West Asia, Europe, Africa, and Latin America.
AIIB is scaling up its support for urban sector programs in client countries and is working to recruit experienced and talented urban specialists with strong skills in either urban development policy, planning or engineering.
The Investment Operation Specialist-Urban will be responsible for leading multidisciplinary teams that will work closely with clients and development partners on urban projects/programs. This will include, but not limited to, supporting planning, design, preparation, implementation and evaluation of projects/programs that are aligned with AIIB's mission, strategies and priorities. Occasionally, the Specialist will also be required to provide technical support to Management and other project team leaders regarding urban planning and other urban development-related issues.
This position will report to the Lead Investment Operations Specialist who is leading the Urban and Water team in Infrastructure Investment Department Region 1.

Accountabilities & Responsibilities
  • Ensure all project aspects (technical, economic, financial, fiduciary, social, environmental issues and any critical cross-sectoral issues, in particular, climate change) are considered and properly addressed, and that AIIB policy requirements are followed.
  • Lead and manage project teams that consist of various specialists to provide efficient and high-quality supervision, monitoring and evaluation of projects/programs.
  • Support the implementation of investment projects/programs and technical assistance, helping to ensure they generate expected outcomes and results, and comply with AIIB's relevant policy requirements.

Technical Contributions:
  • Work as a technical expert, or a team member on other multidisciplinary teams, to provide quality technical contributions that are required for urban planning and other urban development-related areas in line with AIIB's business needs. Identify and propose innovative, integrated, and climate-smart solutions in the design and preparation of new lending projects/programs.
  • Support capacity development in relevant implementing entities (usually, the relevant line ministry or regulator in charge of urban development and municipalities or subnational government agencies) to plan, design, construct and operate infrastructure, provide services and address potential social and economic challenges.

Policy Dialogue and Client Relationship Management:
  • Under the leadership of a Lead Specialist, take an active part in maintaining a dialogue and collaborating with clients and development partners on strategic areas/topics, such as sustainable and smart cities or regional economic integration.
  • Advocate and promote AIIB's mission and operational priorities (e.g., green infrastructure, cross-country connectivity, technology-enabled infrastructure, private capital mobilization, and climate financing) and help clients identify, evaluate and develop infrastructure investment opportunities that are closely aligned to both client's own policies/strategies and AIIB's strategies and priorities.

Knowledge, Skills, Experience & Qualifications
  • Minimum 5 - 8 years of relevant working experience in the urban sector including identification, preparation, implementation and supervision of urban projects and/or programs.
  • Of the above 5- 8 years, a minimum 3-year proven track record of implementation of successful business operations in developing countries (exposure to countries that are highly capacity-constrained would be an advantage) and introduction of state-of-the-art technology and expertise to countries in Asia.
  • Operational experience with multilateral development banks, with solid understanding of operational policies (including various financing instruments) and the project cycle, is desirable.
  • Strong organizational and project management skills that enable day-to-day management of a large and complex project portfolio.
  • Master's degree or equivalent from a reputable university in a relevant field including economics, urban planning, development and management, engineering, urban resilience, and other related fields.
