Transparency International EU
Transparency International EU (TI EU) is an international non-profit organisation under Belgian law (AISBL) based in Brussels (Belgium). We work closely with Transparency International national chapters in over 100 countries worldwide and the International Secretariat (TI-S) based in Berlin.
As part of the global Transparency International movement, TI EU coordinates Transparency Internationals advocacy toward the EU institutions. The mission of TI EU is to prevent corruption and promote integrity, transparency and accountability in EU institutions, policies and legislation. This will in turn enhance efforts at the national level to fight corruption and promote equality and access to justice for citizens.
TI EU is looking for an experienced and motivated individual for its EU advocacy team. We are seeking an EU Policy Officer who will lead our advocacy toward and partnership with the EU in achieving the anti-corruption and good governance targets as part of the EUs commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The role will promote anti-corruption strategies as part of the EUs internal and external policies, for example looking at how anti-corruption and good governance standards can be embedded in macroeconomic surveillance of Member States, enlargement and neighbourhood policies, development assistance and trade agreements. The person will also liaise with Transparency International chapters inside and outside the EU in order to share best practice and coordinate their input into these policies. S/he will have a key role in monitoring and engaging with the EU institutions on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, in the context of Transparency Internationals global and EU strategies.
