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.

We are looking to fill an exciting research position that will be based in our Research and Knowledge Team. The Research and Knowledge Team supports the achievement of TI-S’ goals through the delivery of global research products and developing new, cutting-edge research products. It supports the organisation’s advocacy initiatives through the collection of robust evidence and meeting the research and knowledge needs of key stakeholders within the anti-corruption community.

As part of this mandate, you will work with our Chapters around the world in supporting their research needs and their efforts in conceptualising new research methodologies. Additionally you will play a relevant role in providing research support and quality control to the research products of the TI movement and, as required, you will provide research support to various quantitative/index multi-country projects and a variety of organisational tasks.

We are looking for an experienced researcher, used to working in multicultural environments where diversity is seen as an asset and is highly valued. You need to be flexible and be ready to be thrown off your routine with last minute asks. TI is a NGO and as such, we work in a fast-paced environment with limited resources. Hence, the ability to prioritise must be your second nature. More importantly you need to feel full alignment with and unwavering commitment to our mission – that of a world without corruption - and be laser-focussed on contributing to achieving this.

Main function: Provision of research support to the anti-corruption movement in support of TI’s 2020 strategic priorities.
