Current Job Openings
The Center for International Policy (CIP) is a non-profit founded in 1975 to advocate for a foreign policy that promotes cooperation, transparency and accountability in global relations. The International Secretariat of the Financial Transparency Coalition (FTC), which CIP hosts, seeks a motivated and highly adaptive Outreach Coordinator to join its team.
This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the success of an influential coalition of civil society, governments, and experts who have joined together to curb illicit financial flows leaving developing countries. The Outreach Coordinator role will assist the team to engage new constituencies around the globe to work together to tackle the problems of tax evasion and money laundering, with a particular emphasis on the Global South.
The Financial Transparency Coalition (FTC) is composed of over 150 civil society organisations, 13 governments, and dozens of the world’s foremost experts on illicit financial flows. The FTC’s mission is to curtail illicit financial flows through the promotion of a transparent, accountable and sustainable financial system that works for everyone. Since its inception in 2009 (when it was known as the Task Force on Financial Integrity and Economic Development), the FTC has successfully mobilized governments and civil society stakeholders to take action against the outflow of illicit money from developing countries, which is estimated at seven times the flow of official development assistance coming in.
The Outreach Coordinator will report to the Southern Regions Program Advisor and be based at the FTC Secretariat in Washington, DC. This is a grant-funded position until December 31, 2015, with the possibility for extension.
- Support the Southern Regions Program Advisor in the coordination of the FTC’s Southern Regions Program, which encompasses advocacy, outreach, and movement-building activities in Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, and Asia.
