Application Closing Date - 01 Mar 2020

Job Start Date - As soon as possible

Duration - Until December 2023

Location - Melbourne, Australia

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 lead on TI’s Pacific engagement together with national chapters and other stakeholders in the region. This includes supporting TI national chapters, developing and coordinating regional-level research and advocacy, as well as leading engagement with key regional forums and building new national-level partnerships throughout the region, including Melanesia, Polynesia and Micronesia. This role will be supported by a second person, also based in the region, who will help provide organizational, operations and fundraising support to the TI chapters in the Pacific as well as project implementation. Both staff members will be coordinating and working closely with colleagues 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: The Pacific Regional Engagement and Advocacy Lead drives regional engagement, advocacy and outreach strategies in the Pacific, representing TI in regional and global institutions and fora and implementing activities that strengthen TI’s media presence, reputation and impact at regional level. The role also supports TI Chapters in the region to be impactful and sustainable organizations, as well as engages in new countries in the Pacific. This position works closely with colleagues of the Asia Pacific Team, and reporting to the Regional Programme Manager, at TI-S in Berlin.

Starting date: As soon as possible
Duration: Until December 2023
Location: Initially based in Melbourne, Australia, with extensive regional and international travel

Next week governments can take a step to close down secrecy jurisdictions. Will they?

National financial regulators attending the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) plenary in Paris 16 – 21 February have the opportunity to significantly reduce money laundering, corruption and terror financing. They must not squander the opportunity.

Why don’t the victims of bribery share in the record-breaking Airbus settlement?

Last Friday, French, UK and US authorities announced that Airbus would pay record penalties for foreign bribery. Notably absent in the agreements are any plans to share the penalty payment with the countries where the company was paying bribes.

Nadie es perfecto

Los países con las puntuaciones más altas en el IPC, como Dinamarca, Suiza e Islandia, no son inmunes a la corrupción. Si bien el IPC muestra que los sectores públicos en estos países están entre los menos corruptos del mundo, la corrupción existe, especialmente en casos de lavado de dinero y otras formas de corrupción en el sector privado.

مشكلة في الأعلى

Переполох на верху

Страны с самым высоким рейтингом по ИВК, такие как Дания, Швейцария и Исландия, не защищены от коррупции. Хотя ИВК показывает, что государственный сектор в этих странах является одним из самых чистых в мире, коррупция все еще существует, особенно в случаях отмывания денег и другой коррупции в частном секторе.

Problèmes au sommet

Les pays les mieux classés sur l’IPC comme le Danemark, la Suisse et l’Islande ne sont pas à l’abri de la corruption. Bien que l’IPC montre que les secteurs publics de ces pays sont parmi les moins corrompus au monde, la corruption existe toujours, en particulier dans les cas de blanchiment d’argent et d’autres formes de corruption du secteur privé.

Индекс восприятия коррупции 2019

Индекс восприятия коррупции 2019 года выявил, что огромное число стран практически не показывает улучшения в борьбе с коррупцией. Наш анализ также показывает, что сокращение больших денег в политике и содействие инклюзивному принятию политических решений необходимы для сдерживания коррупции.
