About Tony Blair Institute for Global Change:
The Tony Blair Institute for Global Change is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to making globalisation work for the many, not the few. We offer new thinking and new approaches to addressing some of the most intractable problems leaders today are wrestling with.

The Institute works to provide policy and strategy in support of a vision of globalisation designed to improve the well-being of the people, economically, politically, and socially. 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
Focus of the Role:
As an integral part of the People and Organisation Development team, you will play a crucial role in the delivery of all aspects of our activity and work actively to develop our ways of working to support the growth and development of TBI. You’ll want to maximise the use of technology to help us deliver. You need to understand the full potential of people and organisation development and be curious and want to learn and develop yourself and the team. You need to be flexible and adaptable and able to adapt your style to successfully influence and get things done across the organisation.

  • Success in design, development and facilitation of learning and development interventions
  • Strong coaching, influencing and communication skills
  • Ability to think and plan strategically and convert this to action
  • Act with discretion and confidentiality when dealing with sensitive information
  • Strong organisation and prioritisation skills and able to carry out multiple projects simultaneously and deliver to planned deadlines
  • Self starter, self sufficient, determined and a team player.

Organisational Relationships

Working closely with all members of the People and Organisation Development team (HRBPs, Recruitment and HR Assistant), people across TBI worldwide.

  • Design, develop and facilitate whole organisation approach to career development
