This programme seeks to strengthen government capacity to plan and implement the reforms which create the enabling environment needed for long term, sustainable development of the power sector. The programme provides on-the-ground embedded support to ministries at the centre of government in the form of Resident or Regional Advisors, complemented by pro-bono high-level leader-to-leader support provided by the Senior Advisors Group (SAG) and targeted, technical support on specific aspects of reform by infrastructure specialists hired on a consultancy basis.
We currently have three initiatives under the Co-Existence portfolio: Compass (a mentoring project that supports young women to break down sociocultural barriers they face to achieving their aspirations and integration into British society); Generation Global (an international dialogue education programme that through teacher training and in-classroom activities builds open-mindedness and global citizenship skills); and Supporting Leaders (a capacity building programme for religious leaders in sub-Saharan Africa to counter extremism in their local communities). It is envisaged that we will need one intern for each programme, subject to on-going discussions related to the strategic review on the programme portfolio for 2020 onwards.
Our work on Co-Existence focuses on the urgent need to tackle extremism, the devastating and divisive effects of which are being felt across the world. Countering extremism requires a long-term and multidimensional approach that addresses the problem before it becomes violent and recognizes that the violence is a symptom of, and supported by, a way of thinking. Our approach seeks first to understand extremist ideology, then address it through disrupting its spread and reducing its appeal, as well as building resilience to its messaging.
Our research and analysis capability provides the thought leadership needed to properly define the challenge and address it at all levels. We present informed, evidence-based analysis of the ideological foundations of extremism, its global impact, as well as the complex drivers of resilience and vulnerability to these destructive world views. Our research informs policies, programmes, and civil society responses to extremism globally.

With the third largest GDP in Africa and 31 million inhabitants, Angola surpasses other important economies in the region, such as Nigeria, in terms of GDP per capita ($3,432). Angola is the second largest oil producer in Africa. Oil production comprises 97% of exports and 63% of tax revenues. Though the oil industry only accounts for 30% of GDP, a large part of the services sector (about 40% of GDP) is indirectly driven by the oil industry. The culmination of the commodities boom in 2014 evidenced the lack of sustainability of the economic model. The Government intends to diversify the economy beyond extractives launching a programme to increase production, import substitutes and diversify exports.
The Government of Angola (GoA) plans to establish a Delivery Unit—Unidade de Monitorização dos Projetos do Executivo (UMAPE)—in the President’s Auxiliary Bodies to implement its key social, economic and political reforms aimed at improving citizens' lives; fostering a job-creating economy; and ensuring transparency and good use of public funds.
The Tony Blair Institute (TBI) will support GoA in designing and operationalizing UMAPE, therefore we are looking to recruit an exceptional individual with experience in centre of government and delivery to provide strategic advice and capacity building support.
