Transparency International Australia (TI Australia), the Australian chapter of the world’s leading non-governmental anti-corruption movement, is seeking a Policy and Advocacy Coordinator located in Melbourne, to work within its Accountable Mining Programme.
TI Australia has led the Accountable Mining Programme for the global Transparency International movement since 2016, working in over 20 countries. This programme seeks to achieve real change in combatting corruption in the mining sector. The Policy and Advocacy Coordinator will primarily be working in the implementation of the project, Raising Company Standards and Ambition on Business Integrity in the Mining Sector, while supporting the development and growth of the Accountable Mining Programme.
We are seeking a motivated and highly organised individual with exceptional skills in project management and excellent communication abilities, both written and verbal to coordinate the project implementation, while supporting the growth of the programme as a whole. The successful candidate will have experience in engaging a diverse range of stakeholders, and the ability to work in a fast-paced environment. They will be highly motivated, able to work in a small team, and willing to take on a diverse range of responsibilities. Experience working in the not-for-profit sector would be advantageous.
The Policy and Advocacy Coordinator, Accountable Mining Programme will drive the implementation of the project Raising Company Standards and Ambition on Business Integrity in the Mining Sector and support the implementation of other workstreams within the programme.
The objective of this Project is to raise business integrity standards across the global mining industry and systematically drive improvements to company practices and engagement with governments, host communities and civil society in relation to new projects, expansions and investment in existing projects.
The Project’s short-term objective is for target mining companies of different sizes to have increased awareness of the importance of business integrity and its relevance for responsible business and ESG performance. To promote longer-term results, the Project aims to drive lasting change in company practices through sustained improvements to business integrity policies, procedures and practices, and by supporting collective leadership by selected participating companies. Through these efforts, the Project will contribute to transparent and ethical conduct becoming a norm and expectation in the industry and integral to any company that seeks to be a ‘miner of choice’.
This is a unique and exciting opportunity to help lead a global initiative designed to generate tangible and lasting change in the fight against corruption in the mining sector while directly contributing to TI Australia’s strategic development and global leadership. If you are passionate about driving positive change in the industry, we encourage you to apply.
