Job Description

Transparency International UK (TI-UK) is the country’s leading anti-corruption non-governmental organisation, and is part of a global coalition sharing one vision: a world in which government, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption.  Further details of our work can be found here.

The Transparency International Health Initiative is a global programme hosted by the Transparency International UK Chapter. The Programme’s overall goal is to improve global health and healthcare outcomes for the benefit of all people, of all ages. It aims to achieve this by reducing corruption and promoting transparency, integrity and accountability within the pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors. Further details of our work can be found here.

This an excellent point to join the Health Initiative. We have a new strategy; some established flagship DFID funding and a range of exciting potential projects. The TI Movement recently renewed its commitment to health as a global anti-corruption priority and we already have strong relationships with a number of TI’s 100+ National Chapters. We regularly engage with the World Health Organisation and hope to become an official partner in 2020.

Our new strategy focuses on three priority areas of the health value chain: Research and Development (especially Clinical Trials Transparency), Procurement (especially around Open Contracting) and Service Delivery (building on our recent highly acclaimed Ignored Pandemic report). This role will be central to ensuring that we can harness the growing demand for synergies between SDGs 3 and 16 and to place corruption in healthcare at the centre of the development agenda.

We are seeking an experienced Policy and Partnership Manager who will play a substantial and crucial role in our overall programme development. You will use your fundraising and policy skills and experience to establish, develop and harness collaborative relationships with internal Movement and external partners (including the WHO) to develop an exciting and innovative project pipeline.

  • Managing and delivering an impactful policy research pipeline, including strategic and policy thought leadership, development and management of external research ToRs, contributing to existing projects (including the established Open Contracting for Health project)
  • Developing and maintaining network of internal TI Movement stakeholders (at TI-S and National Chapters) and external stakeholders (including (I)NGOs, think tanks/academic institutions, private sector partners and industry bodies and bi and multilateral partners (including WHO)
  • Developing and overseeing implementation of TI HI advocacy and comms strategies, including coordination with the Communications teams in TI UK and TI S, developing advocacy material (blogs, social media content etc) and overseeing development of internal TI HI MEL/impact returns.
  • Deputising for TI HI Director (as required, including with Trustees/SMT) and contributing to development of TI Movement thinking on the management of global programmes and TI UK operational structures and policies; and to TI UK’s learning and behaviours culture, including leading/supporting/mentoring direct reports and the wider TI UK team.
