20 New Economist Paid Interns Positions at GIZ Rwanda (Deadline: 28th July, 2022)


Vacancy Announcement

Economist Interns 


The Macroeconomic Investment Policies (MIP) program

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a federally owned international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. GIZ has worked in Rwanda for over 30 years. The primary objectives between the Government of Rwanda and the Federal Republic of Germany are poverty reduction and promotion of sustainable development. To achieve these objectives, GIZ Rwanda is active in the sectors of Governance, Climate & Energy, Sustainable Growth and Digitalisation.


The Macroeconomic Investment Policies (MIP) program is a joint Rwandan-German Development Cooperation project implemented by GIZ, commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The project aims at strengthening individual and institutional capacities for economic analyses and evidence-based policymaking in five areas: planning and implementation of public investments, macroeconomic modelling, promotion of evidence-based tax policy, improvement of research-based higher education, and strengthening research and policy dialogue.

Since 2016, the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning (MINECOFIN)—in collaboration with the GIZ Macroeconomic and Investment Policies programme (MIP)—offers the Young Economist Programme (YEP) to recent graduates with a Bachelor’s degree specialized in economics. The internship allows young professionals to bring new perspectives and research skills to the practical environment of economic policy and planning, gain work experience, and enhance their applied research skills.

GIZ-MIP is seeking highly qualified and motivated recent graduates in economics who are interested in working as intern for twelve months in a MINECOFIN department (Office of the Chief Economist, National Development and Planning Research Department, and National Budget Department).
