Job description: TIA website
Transparency International Australia (TI Australia), the Australian chapter of the world’s leading non-governmental anti-corruption movement, is seeking a full-time Fundraising Coordinator located in Melbourne, Australia, to lead Phase II of the ‘Mining for Sustainable Development’ programme. This programme seeks to achieve real change in combatting corruption in the mining sector and building the capacity of TI Australia as a Centre of Expertise on anti-corruption in mining.
The role requires a highly skilled professional fundraiser with demonstrated experience in securing funds and managing donor relations for a large complex international programme. The successful candidate will be a highly respected practitioner with outstanding communication skills, including cross-cultural communication, and experience working with international donors. An understanding of the extractive industries would be advantageous.
Transparency International (TI) is a global movement, composed of more than 100 national chapters worldwide and an International Secretariat in Berlin, Germany. We are united by our shared vision: a world in which government, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption. For more than 20 years, TI has played a leading global role in combatting corruption, which is widely recognised to be a serious impediment to economic development and a destabilising social force.
TI Australia has operated as an accredited TI national chapter since 1995, focusing on ways in which Government and Australian-based companies and institutions can address corruption issues both in Australia and abroad.
Led by TI Australia with the support of the TI Secretariat, the ‘Mining for Sustainable Development’ programme (M4SD) seeks to enhance the contribution of mining to sustainable economic and human development through a focus on improved transparency and accountability in the award of mining-related permits, licences and contracts across a range of national jurisdictions. Based on the programme’s ‘bottom up’ approach to ensure that change happens at the level where decisions about mining approvals are made, the primary role of the programme team is to support the participating TI national chapters.
Phase I of the programme has been successfully completed. During Phase I, participating TI chapters identified and assessed corruption vulnerabilities in the mining approvals processes in their countries and began building multi-stakeholder networks. Phase II will focus on addressing those vulnerabilities at a national, regional and global level through multi-stakeholder engagement, advocacy and policy initiatives.
The Fundraising Coordinator will lead and coordinate fundraising for the ‘Mining for Sustainable Development’ programme, and will ensure that it secures additional funding to achieve its sustainability objectives. S/he will identify sources of funding, will liaise with key donors, prepare concept notes and coordinate reporting for both the global work and to support the TI chapters to secure their funding for the Mining for Sustainable Development programme. This is a unique and exciting opportunity for a candidate who is truly inspired and energised by the opportunity to help lead a global initiative designed to generate tangible and lasting change in the fight against corruption; while directly contributing to TI Australia’s strategic development and global leadership.
The Fundraising Coordinator will report to the Head of Programme, Mining for Sustainable Development. S/he will have no direct line reports, but is expected to liaise closely with the TI Secretariat External Stakeholder Engagement team in Berlin and the Regional Advisers.
