About us

Transparency International UK (TI-UK) is the country’s leading anti-corruption non-governmental organisation, and is part of a global coalition sharing one vision: a world in which government, business, civil society and the daily lives of people are free of corruption. Further details of our work can be found here.

Situated within TI-UK’s UK Anti-Corruption Programme (UKACP), you will help colleagues work towards their goal of preventing corruption in the UK, and the UK from contributing to corruption elsewhere. The programme aims to do this by improving the resilience of public institutions, increasing accountability, and ending the UK’s role in providing a safe haven to the corrupt and their illicit wealth. Its work currently focuses on researching and investigating corruption in British politics and the role of UK in facilitating corruption abroad.

We define corruption as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. This includes a range of activities from soliciting and accepting bribes, to embezzling public funds, to exploiting conflicts of interest and soliciting cash for access and influence. More information about corruption and how it affects peoples’ lives can be found here.
