Focus of the Role

We are seeking interns to help us with project management and Monitoring and Evaluation tasks, including conducting analysis of large volumes of qualitative and quantitative data, generated through our programmatic work and through research to support design of our projects and programmes. The data is used to support monitoring and evaluation of impact of our work, as well as to inform wider strategic planning for the portfolio.

Job Introduction

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.

Key Responsibilities

  • Conduct desk research to support decision making on priorities for future programmatic engagement.
  • Conduct desk research on analysis, findings and lessons learned across the Countering Violent Extremism (CVE), peacebuilding and social cohesion sectors.
  • Assist the project teams in using a variety of methods to collect, analyse and report qualitative and quantitative field data from our work.
  • Assist in the preparation of reports and presentations to key internal/external stakeholders.
  • Identify and support rectification of any data issues, including recommendations for improvement of data collection and analysis methods.
  • Liaise with the Monitoring and Evaluation Team and other departments across the Institute as necessary.
  • Assist the programmes team with day to day to administration tasks relating to project management and fundraising.

Person Specification

  1. Ability to work collaboratively within a team, showing high flexibility as priorities change, and support areas are revised according to needs
  2. Excellent analytical, organizational and communication skills
  3. Ability to deliver results in complex and challenging environments.
  4. Experience of working with governments is desirable, but not required
  5. We are looking for individuals with high levels of enthusiasm, resilience, a can-do attitude and ability to achieve consistently results in a fast-paced environment.

About The Institute

At the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change we are dedicated to making globalisation work for the many, not the few. We do this by helping countries, their people and their governments, address some of the most difficult challenges in the world today – beginning with those where we think we can break new ground, offering leaders new thinking and new approaches. Our staff – over 200 of them, based all over the world – are working on some of the most intractable problems around issues of co-existence, governance, the peace process in the Middle East and renewing the centre ground of politics.
