Transparency International is a global movement sharing one vision: a world in which government politics, business and the daily lives of people are free of corruption. Transparency International UK is the UK national chapter of this movement. We work with the British government, parliamentarians, civil society and the private sector to tackle corruption at home, addressing the UK’s global corruption footprint and helping multinational companies prevent corruption by operating with integrity. We are also home to two major global programmes tackling corruption in the Defence and Security sector and Global Health on behalf of the wider Transparency International movement.
About the role
As Coalition Communications Manager you will work with the UK Anti-Corruption Coalition’s (UKACC) Illicit Finance Working Group (IFWG) to develop and deliver a shared communications strategy which helps to bring about meaningful change in legislation and policy over the next 24 months to end Britain’s role as global hub for dirty money.
In addition you will:
- Regularly review the objectives in any existing strategy, based on what works and as our audience understanding grows, in order to refine objectives and tactics. You will work to identify opportunities relevant to UKACC’s illicit finance objectives and advise on where the group works best with a shared voice and where members work best with diverse voices coordinating behind the scenes.
- Coordinate and collaborate across the IFWG members, supporting the group to draw on its collective strengths and key moments. You will contribute to building members’ capacity and ability to represent the group and their own organisations to the media and in videos etc through sourcing or providing training for spokespeople and coaching sessions.
- Be responsible for producing shared messaging and content for the IFWG informed by audience insight and understanding. This includes visual content for digital media such as videos, infographics, animations as well as written content, based on the Coalition’s calls to action, reports etc. This is likely to involve commissioning and managing agencies providing design and content production services, but may also include in-house content creation.
- Manage the UK Anti-Corruption Coalition website and the linked IFWG webpage as shared communications platforms, ensuring the content is relevant to key audiences, compelling and up to date. You will also manage and grow the Coalition’s social media activity, content and profile, developing a digital plan to drive engagement. Key to this will be using analytics to monitor and assess what works.
- Build relationships with influential media to help get the Coalition’s issues and calls for change on the agenda in key publications. This would include a focus on proactive engagement to generate interest in key publications and events in the pipeline such as member organisations’ launches and reports, upcoming Bills, events, as well as the run up to party political conferences and the UK election.
To be successful in this role you will have:
- A Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience
- Substantial experience of working in communications, or other relevant employment
- In-depth knowledge of print, broadcast and digital media operations
- Experience of working with digital and social media, and measuring the impact of related content
- Experience of enabling different groups to coordinate and collaborate
- An ability to identify opportunities for influence and develop a tactical plan to do so

- Ability to navigate dynamics between stakeholders with high levels of diplomacy
- Ability and confidence to present complex technical information to a non-technical audience
- Experience of producing basic digital content for social media
In exchange we will offer:
- A competitive salary
- 28 days annual leave, plus bank holidays
- Up to 5% contributory pension
- Season ticket loan

Part of the Welcoming Committee’s remit is to help communicate the story of efforts to welcome Hong Kongers: this involves the Welcoming Committee both projecting stories itself and supporting local and national welcoming organisations to do so.
The role requires strong written and verbal communication skills and knowledge and experience of how the UK media works. We would expect the successful candidate to have at least 2-3 years’ experience in a communications, media or journalism role. Experience of using social media platforms and updating websites is also desirable. Building good working relationships – with organisations working to welcome Hong Kongers, journalists, influencers and BN(O) Hong Kongers themselves – will be an important part of the job and experience of working with a range of stakeholders is desirable.
The role also requires good administrative and organisational skills and the ability to work well in a small team. An understanding of the situation for Hong Kongers and/or the ability to speak Cantonese would be an advantage, though it is certainly not required.
The Communications Manager will work with a range of team members on aspects of the Welcoming Project, in particular British Future’s Director of Communications and the Welcoming Committee for Hong Kongers Coordinator. There is a small budget to work with a freelance story-gatherer and freelance film-makers and photographers where required. They will also work alongside British Future’s Director of Research and the Events Manager.
The tasks to be performed by the Communication Manager, working with British Future’s Director of Communications, include:
Communicate proactively in national, regional, diaspora and online media about the integration and work to welcome BN(O) Hong Kongers.
Build relationships with welcoming organisations – supporting them to place stories about welcoming work and the challenges that Hong Kongers are facing; sourcing stories and case studies; and securing content from welcoming organisations for our website.
Establish and coordinate a regular Hong Kong welcoming communications network, meeting every 2 months, for stakeholders involved in communicating about the BN(O) welcoming programme. This may involve offering communications skills webinars to encourage people to attend.
Plan and deliver one or more events, in partnership with a welcoming organisation, which secure positive media coverage. Support the communication of Welcoming Committee events.
Develop and deliver a social media strategy, building audiences and profile to help the Welcoming Committee reach key audiences and keeping its social feeds updated.
Working with a story gatherer, find and communicate positive case studies of contact and integration for new arrivals from Hong Kong; and also examples of the challenges Hong Kongers face and the work of welcomers to help address them. Communicate these stories in media outlets and online/on social media.
Build a network of spokespeople and interviewees who can speak to the media about work to welcome Hong Kongers.
Explore and develop a strategy for communicating with BN(O) Hong Kongers.
Keep the Welcoming Committee website regularly updated with engaging content.
The Communications Manager is expected to take part in the following regular meetings:
Weekly operations meeting with the Director of Communications
Weekly operations meetings with the wider Welcoming Committee team
Regular British Future team meetings
Quarterly Advisory meetings of the Welcoming Committee for Hong Kongers
Quarterly meetings of the Welcoming Committee for Hong Kongers forum
This is a 6 month contract with possibility of extension. The Welcoming Committee project has guaranteed funding until the 31st March 2023 but future funding, either on Hong Kong welcoming or related work, is likely.
The post is within the salary range £28-30,000 (pro-rata) depending on experience.
The remuneration package includes a contribution towards a personal pension plan of up to 10% of gross salary, based on double-matching employee contributions. Annual leave is 30 days a year.
Our standard office hours are 9am-5pm, Monday to Friday but a willingness to work flexibly and out of hours (with time off in lieu) is needed for this post. British Future’s office is in Borough, close to London Bridge. The team, including the Communications Director, work in the office 2-3 days a week. It would be preferable for the Media Manager to have a similar pattern of working.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
