Event Project Officer (CDD)

ICC is seeking an Event Project Officer in our closely-knit team, to work on our flagship event, the World Chambers Congress.  

As the institutional representative of over 45 million businesses in more than 100 countries, the International Chamber of Commerce operates with a core mission to “make business work for everyone, every day, everywhere”. 

We act as the primary voice of the real economy in a range of intergovernmental organisations – from the World Trade Organisation to the UN climate process – championing the needs of local business in global decision making. 

The convening power of our global network enables us to set rules and standards that facilitate over $10 trillion dollars in trade each year – as well as providing tailored products and digital services that directly address the real challenges faced by businesses operating internationally. 

We also provide the world’s premier private global dispute resolution services, leveraging ICC’s unique independence, integrity, and expertise. 

The World Chambers Federation is ICC’s unique and truly global forum uniting the global network of chambers and their respective business communities. It is a non-political, non-governmental body, and is the backbone of the chamber community providing a platform for chamber leaders to communicate and collaborate with each other on matters of mutual interest and facilitating beneficial partnerships. 

Organised by the ICC World Chambers Federation, the World Chambers Congress is the only international forum for chamber leaders and professionals to share best practices, exchange insights, develop networks, address the latest business issues affecting their communities and learn about new areas of innovation from chambers around the world.  The next Congress or the 13th World Chambers Congress (13WCC) will be held in Geneva, from 21-23 June 2023.  

ICC is seeking an Event Project Officer in our closely-knit team, to work on our flagship event, the World Chambers Congress.
