About AGI's work
AGI is working for a future in which Africa’s development is led by Africans, with governments that are capable of setting and achieving priorities that reflect the rising aspirations and expectations of their citizens. To achieve this vision, we provide practical advice and support to help African leaders to bridge the gap between their vision for a better future and the capacity of their governments to achieve it. We work with countries – currently Sierra Leone, Liberia, Rwanda, Guinea, Nigeria, South Sudan and Malawi – that are at turning points and where we have had an invitation from the Head of Government to provide capacity development support.
Our model combines the experience of AGI’s founder and patron, Mr Blair, with on-the-ground teams of professionals permanently based in our partner countries, working shoulder-to-shoulder with senior leaders in the heart of government to develop capacity and put in place the skills, systems and structures needed to drive the delivery of results on the ground. AGI is a dynamic and fast-growing charity, celebrating its 5th anniversary in 2013.
We appreciate your interest in working with the Tony Blair Africa Governance Initiative. A list of our current vacancies is available below and you can apply for any of these or submit a speculative application at on our careers site.
