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.

The IMPACT grant focuses on increasing the integrity, transparency and accountability of public sector institutions and the private sector, while empowering civil society to advocate for changes in policy and practice in 12 National Chapters mostly in the Americas’ region (including the Caribbean) but also in the African region. The Programme Officer will support the smooth implementation, monitoring and reporting of the overall IMPACT grant.

Working closely with the Programme Coordinator, the Programme Officer coordinates the work flow, financial and administrative monitoring and reporting of the IMPACT grant activities, ensuring that agreed goals, best practice standards, donor obligations and TI-S regulations are met.
