Project Manager – Commitments

  • Full time (35 hrs pw)
  • 18 months fixed term
  • Salary: £33,000 – £38,000
  • Location: London


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

The role sits within the UK Anti-Corruption Programme (UKACP).


About the role

The ‘Project Manager – Commitments’ role coordinates the delivery of the DFID Promise to Practice (P2P) project, working with TI chapters to drive governments to fulfil their Anti-Corruption Summit commitments.

P2P builds on previous efforts and analysis around the 2016 Anti-Corruption Summit, seeking to intensify pressure in a subset of countries and on a subset of commitments where substantial gains would directly contribute to the Summit’s intention to “expose corruption wherever it is found, to pursue and punish those who perpetrate, facilitate or are complicit in it, to support the communities who have suffered from it, and to ensure it does not fester in our government institution, businesses and communities.”

The ‘Project Manager – Commitments’ role line manages one staff member. The role works with TI national chapters around the world, and a vibrant project team – based in the UK and internationally – to deliver the project. This role is likely to require occasional travel (long-haul).

As ‘Project Manager – Commitments’, you would be responsible for:

  • Managing the overall delivery of the Promise to Practice project by coordinating and executing grant-based outputs, and ensuring deliverables are met on time and in budget, with reporting completed to a high standard
  • Representing TI-UK externally: a) in relevant forums, especially around the topic of the Anti-Corruption Summit, promoting the project and sharing findings with stakeholders; b) building strategic relationships and creating opportunities to enhance the impact of the project.
  • Managing, coordinating and engaging with internal and external stakeholders and partners to ensure the project is delivered to a high-quality and has impact
  • Providing vision and creativity to the delivery of the project, and seeking new opportunities to strengthen it
  • Building and maintaining strong relationships with contacts in the TI Secretariat and relevant TI chapters
  • Managing the project to ensure that it is sustainable and that those working on it have clarity over its many elements, as well as their distinct roles and responsibilities
  • Providing proactive ad hoc support to the UKACP with respect to the team’s objectives, where relevant
