Following several years of design and development with donors and MDBs, the International Finance Facility for Education (IFFEd) is being registered in Geneva and will launch at the Transforming Education Summit in September 2022, as called for by the UN Secretary-General and other global leaders. The development process to date has been led by the Education Commission, building on its landmark Learning Generation report which highlighted the critical gap in education financing in LMICs.
IFFED will become fully operational as an independent entity in 2023 and is currently seeking a Founding CEO to drive forward the full operationalization and implementation of IFFEd from September 2022 onwards. The Founding CEO will be based in the IFFEd offices in Geneva, with the possibility of working remotely during the initial months of the assignment.
Initially, the Founding CEO will work closely with a small transition team at the Education Commission led by the Executive Director, which will phase out as IFFEd’s core team is established.
This is an exciting and challenging opportunity to work with global leaders, donors, governments, and multilateral development banks to shape the mission and establishment of an entirely new innovative finance facility that aims to transform education for 700 million children and youth around the world by unlocking $10 billion in new education financing over the next 5 years.
