Position description

The failure of many countries to provide security and justice for their people, or to forge stable and predictable relationships with their neighbours, is a root cause of some of the world’s most significant security challenges.  TI Defence and Security is working towards a world in which governments, the armed forces, and arms transfers are transparent, accountable, and free from corruption. We seek reforms toward open governments served by transparent defence institutions that are accountable to ordinary people and whose primary purpose is the protection of all citizens.

TI DS works across three themes: with developed and emerging powers to create global standards for the governance of military power; on conflict and insecurity - to ensure policy makers recognise the threat corruption poses to peace and to reduce defence corruption in a fragile and conflict affected states; and tackling corruption in the global arms trade.

We are looking for a permanent Deputy Director. This is an excellent opportunity to join a dynamic and hands on anti-corruption organisation and drive the expansion of an exciting area of work in TI. The Defence & Security Programme is well established within the TI movement and among leading governments. We enjoy a strong reputation, and the potential to grow in several interesting directions. This year we have plans to expand our team to create an international network of staff housed in other TI chapters. The role would particularly suit someone who combines drive and ambition, with experience of delivering through a diverse team in multiple locations.
