As an entry-level professional in the WBG, Young Professionals are offered an internationally competitive salary, based on their education and professional experience.

The WBG also provides disability and Workers’ Compensation coverage to staff at no cost.

Pension Plan:
The WBG sponsors a comprehensive pension plan for eligible staff. Upon separation from the WBG, either a lump sum or a pension will become payable to the staff based on eligibility.
