Transparency International (TI) is the global civil society organisation leading the fight against corruption. In collaboration with more than 100 chapters worldwide and an international secretariat in Berlin, Germany, TI raises awareness of the damaging effects of corruption and works with partners in government, business and civil society to develop and implement effective measures to tackle it.

During 2019, TI is carrying out a strategic update of its Business Integrity engagement approach, involving widespread consultation with internal and external stakeholders, as well as background research. In addition, the main ongoing project under the business integrity work stream is the implementation of a TI assessment tool called the Business Integrity Country Agenda.

Main function: The Programme Coordinator is responsible for ensuring a) smooth implementation of the Business Integrity Country Agenda project in Serbia and Rumania. Specifically, the Programme Coordinator coordinates the workflow, financial and administrative management of the project, ensuring that agreed goals, best practice standards, donor obligations and TI-S regulations are met by TI-S and TI Chapters and b) contributing to the strategic update process through coordination of consultation processes as well as carrying out background research and overall support as required by the Business Integrity Lead.
