Berlin [ENA] The civil society organization Transparency International (TI) offers investigative reporters an “exciting” job in its advocacy team to boost the fight against corruption. The “Strategic Partnerships Manager – Investigative Journalism” will provide strategic direction for the unit engaging in cases of cross-border corruption and money laundering, a TI advertisement says. Deadline for submissions is 13 August.

Journalists and other professionals interested in the subject can apply for this position in Berlin. Candidates must have a professional background in international organizations, knowledge of anti-corruption, experience in investigative reporting and criminal justice or field research. Proficiency in English is required. TI wants the new manager to start as soon as possible. The job duration is until 31 December 2020, extension possible. TI says it is leading the fight against corruption in collaboration with more than 100 chapters worldwide and its Berlin-based secretariat by raising awareness of the effects of corruption and working with partners in government, business and civil society to develop and implement measures to tackle it.

TI has been partnering with journalists at the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) using its in-depth investigations. Examples of TI’s worldwide collaboration include work around the Azerbaijani Laundromat, Golden Visas in Europe, and the Gambia Heist investigations. Present advocacy priorities focus on fighting cross-border flows of illicit money and protecting political systems from undue influence. The new manager among other things will lead and oversee implementation of the Global Anti-Corruption Consortium (GACC) project, co-lead donor relations and propose new anti-corruption investigations. Candidates must prove media and advocacy experience; remote working or working from home outside Germany is not possible.
