The countries with the highest number of job offerings can be divided into regions: North America, Europe, Africa and South and western Asia. Let’s take a closer look at each region.

🔹 North America

It should be no surprise that the United States is the leading nation in terms of job offers and is a safe bet when seeking work in international development since numerous international development corporations and contributors are based in the US.

Candidates have the opportunity to apply for in-house positions with several well-known agencies including the United Nations, the World Bank, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

🔹 Europe

This region can be divided into countries from western Europe and Ukraine, with the latter witnessing an increase in the number of positions for international development.

Countries such as the UK, Switzerland, and France offer numerous international development opportunities for those willing to work and/or live in some of the most developed countries on the continent. Careers with consulting companies and NGOs involved in international development can be found here.

Organizations in Ukraine are seeking a growing number of specialists in a number of fields, mainly in human rights, humanitarian assistance, human resources, data analytics, and finance.

🔹 Africa

If you’re looking for something more adventurous, Kenya, Ethiopia, Nigeria, and the Democratic Republic of Congo have plenty of openings.

Here there are jobs linked with the environment, conservation, and WASH sector (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) as well as in the field of logistics and consulting.

🔹 South and Western Asia

Despite the fact that this region has one of the highest rates of economic development in the world, millions of its inhabitants still live in poverty. Job seekers may find these beautiful countries attractive because, besides offering hundreds of job opportunities, they are far less expensive than many other nations in the world.

There are many open roles in international development in nations like India and Jordan (located at the crossing point of Asia, Africa, and Europe) offering the chance to learn more about Asia while also honing talents and gaining professional knowledge.
