Transparency International (TI) is a civil society organisation leading the global fight against corruption.Through more than 100 national 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.
TI-DSP, a TI programme led by the UK chapter, is dedicated to fighting corruption in the defence and security sector globally. TI-DSP works with governments, defence companies, multilateral organisations, and civil society to build anti-corruption capacity and integrity across the world.TI-DSP is a small, hard working team from all around the world. We offer research, training and practical tools for a clean and accountable defence and security sector.
Transparency International Defence & Security and Transparency International Ukraine are looking for a Secretary General for the Independent Defence Anti-Corruption Committee (Nezalezhny Antikorrupciynii Komitet z pytan oborony – NAKO). NAKO is a joint initiative established to fight corruption in the Ukrainian defence sector.
This is an opportunity to make a lasting difference in Ukraine. Defence reform will take time, but the right NAKO Secretary General will turn a nascent Secretariat into a dynamic team able to leverage the voice of the committee to drive top level and permanent change. NAKO is comprised of a first-rate committee of six leading figures in anti-corruption, defence and good governance, and a permanent Secretariat in Kyiv. The Secretary General will provide strong strategic leadership and direction for the Secretariat, and will be adept at navigating political complex set issues and relationships. He/she will also have strong external responsibilities in representing the Committee to government, civil society and the international community.
Since the committee’s first meeting in October, we have built a small team, produced a strategy, terms of reference and mandate, published our first piece of research, Making the System Work: Enhancing Security Assistance to Ukraine, submitted recommendations on defence reform to the Annual National Programme 2017, and formed relationships with the MOD, Ukroboronprom and others. The next pieces of research in the pipeline are on corruption risks in military housing, checkpoints in the East and the illicit trade, and medical supply procurement, and monitoring Ukroboronprom’s procurement of a change consultant.
You will work as part of a dedicated transnational team that is committed to fighting corruption within the defence and security sector of Ukraine. We are looking for someone who is passionate, driven and goal-oriented, with leadership experience and a commitment to tackling corruption in the Ukrainian defence sector.
