Transparency International Australia (TI Australia), the Australian chapter of the world’s leading non-governmental anti-corruption movement, is implementing Phase II of the global ‘Mining for Sustainable Development’ programme. This programme seeks to achieve real change in combatting corruption in the mining sector and building the capacity of TI Australia as a Centre of Expertise on anti-corruption in mining.

This is a new and exciting role for the Mining for Sustainable Development programme. The role will work across the programme to ensure that gender is a key part of the approach to addressing corruption in mining licensing and permitting. This role is central to ensure that we apply a gender lens to our work and to help us to figure out where and how gender is relevant, and what we should be including in our advocacy programme design.

It requires a skilled professional with experience in identifying the gender dimensions in complex areas, developing and integrating gender policy into advocacy and influencing work, and applying that policy in a practical context. Demonstrated experience in ensuring advocacy and research projects are conducted with meaningful gender analysis is essential. The successful candidate will be experienced in working in a multi-country context with people from diverse backgrounds, and will be comfortable providing training and support that enables participants to increase their knowledge of gender. An understanding of the extractive industries sector will be highly regarded. International travel is a requirement of the role.

To be successful in this role, the Gender Coordinator will have (key competencies):

  • an advanced university degree or professional qualifications in a relevant field e.g. gender studies or other equivalent relevant subject area;
  • 5+ years of experience in working in a policy, research or program delivery role related to gender;
  • high level strategic thinking and a strong track record of applying gender analysis to successfully influence the policies and practices of governments, multilateral institutions and/or the private sector;
  • experience working on multi-country research projects and related publications;
  • experience in providing training and support that enables participants from diverse backgrounds to increase their knowledge of gender (experience in a developing country context a distinct advantage);
  • demonstrated proactive, flexible approach and ability to manage competing priorities and to organise and manage workload to meet deadlines;
  • have a proven ability to write in an accessible and succinct manner for both online and publication;
  • experience in developing targeted work plans to achieve programme objectives;
  • fluency (written and spoken) in English, (French/ Spanish an advantage);
  • experience of working in the extractives sector or similar field highly desirable (with mining sector experience a distinct advantage).

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; while directly contributing to TI Australia’s strategic development and global leadership.

Please note that you must have the right to work in Australia to apply for this position.
