From the OECD:

In the first instance, interested individuals should send their resumes to me at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday 28th March, 2014.
Operational Context: The Investment Division supports the OECD’s Investment Committee across four ‘pillars’ of work; investment policy, development, responsible business conduct, and international investment statistics and analysis. Together, these pillars reflect the balance needed for international investment to support sustainable development. The Head of the Investment Division will contribute to advancing the strategic objectives of the Secretary-General in the area of international investment, advance the impact of policy recommendations across the OECD Investment Committee’s four pillars of work, and ensure effective engagement with stakeholders and partners both inside and outside the Organisation.

Knowledge of the investment regimes of OECD member countries and major emerging economies would be an advantage. Excellent knowledge of one of the official languages of the Organisation (English and French) and a working knowledge of, or willingness to learn, the other language. Monthly base salary starting from 9,048 EUR exempt of French income tax, plus allowances based on eligibility.
