IDRC is home to people who share a passion for international development research. With the right support and the right people, development research makes a real difference. We look for employees who truly believe that innovation and knowledge can solve some of the world’s most critical development challenges.

We have more than 350 dedicated employees who speak more than 25 languages. They work from five offices around the world, in Ottawa, Canada; Cairo, Egypt; Montevideo, Uruguay; Nairobi, Kenya; and New Delhi, India. Our cultural diversity enables us to build strong connections with research communities and decision-makers who have a need for the research we fund.

Career opportunities are varied and range from program officers who support researchers in developing countries, to administrators who help manage our operations.

Diversity is key to our success

We value a diverse workforce and are committed to achieving employment equity. If you are an Aboriginal person, a member of a visible minority group, a person with a disability, or a woman, we especially encourage you to apply.
