Adam Smith International (ASI) is looking to recruit ambitious, resourceful and highly qualified professionals as project managers.  The role is to help us deliver complex and politically challenging programmes and, in so doing, to make a real difference in some of the poorest and most fragile countries in the world.

ASI was established in response to demand for practical policy advice from the countries of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union in 1992.  We have since developed into one of the most influential and successful development consultancies in the world with a reputation for delivering results in the most challenging and highly politicised environments. 

Our roster of on-going work gives a flavour of the challenging and high profile nature of the work we do and why we have succeed in attracting staff from the top professional companies:

  • ASI has supported the office of Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangerai in Zimbabwe since 2008;
  • In 2004 ASI helped design and establish Iraq’s Prime Minister’s Office and Cabinet Secretariat.  We continue to work with these institutions to improve policy formulation, decision making and delivery;
  • We have a team in Hargiesa working to strengthen Somaliland’s police force as well as a team in Mogadishu advising on kick starting private sector development following the ousting of the Islamist Al-Shabab group from South Central Somalia;
  • We have been working since 2009 to support the reform and restructuring of South Sudan’s army and played a key role in supporting the establish of South Sudan as a sovereign nation in 2011/12;
  • Our award winning work in support of Afghanistan’s Revenue department is often cited as the most effective civilian intervention in Afghan.  Our team, which has been in place since 2004, has played a key role in increasing Afghan revenues from next to nothing to over $2 billion.

ASI is headquartered in London with branch offices in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Nairobi and Sydney.

We are organised in sector specialist teams covering the areas of private sector development, public administration reform, public financial management, revenue reform, extractive industries, infrastructure & climate change, and justice & security.

A key factor in ASI success has been our ability to attract staff of the highest quality from outside the relatively small and closed world of international development.
