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.

TI’s international secretariat (TI-S) develops cutting-edge research products, collects evidence on what works in anti-corruption, coordinates collective action and leads on regional and global advocacy. We are looking to fill an exciting legal position that will be based in TI-S and contribute to the work of the Global Anti-Corruption Consortium (GACC) – a ground-breaking partnership with investigative journalists at the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP). Taking advantage of advocacy opportunities generated by OCCRP’s in-depth investigations, TI works to disrupt cross-border corruption through policy advocacy and legal action across the world. This work directly contributes to the TI Strategy and global advocacy priorities: tackling of the cross-border flows of corrupt money and protecting political systems from undue influence. Examples stemming from this collaboration include TI’s campaigning and legal accountability work around the Azerbaijani Laundromat, Golden Visas in Europe, and the Gambia Heist investigations together with TI national chapters and other partners.

Main function: The Legal Liaison Officer – Grand Corruption Cases provides assistance to the team working in the area of grand corruption cases, liaising with TI national chapters and other partner organizations on their involvement in casework, supporting the team with both maintaining already existing relationships as well as forming new relationships, and providing administrative support to the team to ensure that partner organizations receive assistance in their legal casework.
