Knowledge and Stakeholder Services Director

The Transparency International Secretariat in Berlin is seeking a highly motivated professional for the position of:

Knowledge and Stakeholder Services Director

Transparency International (TI) is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. Through more than 90 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.

The Knowledge and Stakeholder Services Department is a key part of the Research and Knowledge Group at the Transparency International Secretariat, and is responsible for knowledge gathering, knowledge sharing and the creation of learning channels across the Transparency International movement and beyond. The Department’s work is key to TI’s policy development on corruption and related governance issues, enabling evidence-based advocacy efforts for both TI-S and the TI national chapters.

Main functions:

Working in close collaboration with the Group Director, the Knowledge and Stakeholder Services Director leads the Knowledge and Stakeholder Services Department and is responsible for developing and delivering service-orientated programmes that focus on knowledge sharing and learning.

The Department delivers one of TI’s key strategic programmes, Anti-Corruption Solutions and Knowledge (ASK). The ASK Programme consists of on-demand research and knowledge services to TI National Chapters and stakeholders, including a Help Desk for the TI movement; systematic learning from TI-wide research and practice, including extensive engagement with the research community; and the development of an accessible, user-driven knowledge base on what works to measure, diagnose and stop corruption.

In addition to driving the Anti-Corruption Solutions and Knowledge Programme, the Knowledge and Stakeholder Services Director will oversee development of a Business Integrity Programme, together with the TI private sector team. The Business Integrity Programme will support TI National Chapters in engaging with the private sector, promoting the enforcement of corporate anti-corruption commitments. It will also provide the opportunity for new collective action initiatives and partnerships for TI’s private sector work and identify the most important anti-corruption issues for TI to pursue in the context of financial system reform and financial integrity.
