Centre of Government and Delivery Strategic Advisor - Angola

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.

Political Researcher

Our focus is on tackling the big challenges which hold such a vision of globalisation back:

  • Poor governance which stops the benefits of globalisation being shared because countries cannot build the institutional strength and resilience to transform their situation and deliver for their people
  • Extremism which stops the co-existence and cultural open-mindedness essential for social integration
  • Conflict which entrenches sectarianism and paralyses progress, particularly in the Middle East
  • Western politics which is in urgent need of a new agenda to provide radical but sensible answers to the new challenges presented by globalisation, technology, and the rise of a new false populism.

Our Governance work supports the governments and leaders of fragile, developing, and emerging states to enhance their effectiveness. We are focused on helping governments and leaders make their vision for the development of their country a reality. We work in the centre of government and key line ministries and our work is shaped by national priorities.
