We work at the OECD in a co-operative, collaborative, and respectful environment. Our people are typically recruited with a high level of education and experience in their field, however in a knowledge-based organisation such as this; everybody must acquire new skills and knowledge to meet the changing requirements of current assignments or to move forward in their career. This is an environment where continuous growth is a requirement.
Growth comes in a variety of different ways which do include formal training, however the most valuable learning happens every day through the informal mentoring and guidance you receive from your colleagues and through the people you will meet and work with on the job.
