Transparency International (TI) is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. In collaboration with more than 100 chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin, Germany, TI raises awareness of the damaging effects of corruption and works with partners in government, business and civil society to develop and implement effective measures to tackle it.
In the past 12 months, TI has moved its Pacific support closer to the region by recruiting a staff member based in Australia to support TI’s plans in the region. In the context of a four-year regional programme beginning in 2020, TI is now looking for an outstanding individual to support TI’s Pacific engagement through empowering national chapters and other national level stakeholders in the region.
Strong and sustainable National Chapters are an essential component of TI’s strategy to be impactful and credible anticorruption actors in the region. The Regional Coordinator/Advisor will coordinate organizational, operations and fundraising support to the TI chapters in the Pacific, as well as enhanced project implementation capacity. The Regional Coordinator/Advisor will work closely with Pacific TI chapters including Australia and New Zealand, the Pacific Regional Engagement and Advocacy Lead based in the region, as well as the Asia Pacific Team at the TI Secretariat in Berlin.
This is an exciting position that will play a fundamental role in TI’s ability to have impact and enable change in a key region of the world.
Main function: Working closely with, and reporting to the Pacific Regional Engagement and Advocacy Lead, the Regional Coordinator/Advisor is responsible for strengthening TI’s presence, reputation and impact in Pacific countries for which they are the primary contact. The Regional Coordinator/Advisor supports National Chapters’ work at national level, monitors political developments and reputational risks, coordinates capacity development interventions, and helps to ensure implementation of the TI accreditation process and governance principles.
