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.

Duration: Until December 2023
