TI Australia is seeking to appoint a Mining Project Action Plan Development Consultant – short term

Transparency International Australia (TIA) is seeking an experienced consultant to develop an action plan and stakeholder engagement strategy as a follow up to research into corruption risk assessment in the awarding of mining sector permits, licences and contracts in Australia.

This mining project is part of the multi-stakeholder Mining for Sustainable Development Programme aimed at strengthening transparency and accountability in the mining sector in 19 countries around the world.

Research has been completed in Australia (Queensland and Western Australia) to identify corruption vulnerabilities and assess the risks and impacts. To progress this work, TIA requires an action plan of activities to raise awareness of the risks, and influence the mining industry and key decision-makers to address the corruption risks.

The consultant will have overall responsibility for developing the action plan of activities (based on the risk assessment report), engaging with relevant stakeholders, and preparing for the launch of the report. The consultant is expected to work closely with the TIA CEO, the Mining for Sustainable Development Programme team, other members of TIA, as well as external stakeholders/experts, to complete these tasks.

Selection Criteria

  • Relevant experience in the mining sector in Australia, either professionally or in a research or academic capacity, including knowledge of the regulatory frameworks
  • Experience in turning research results into action through the design of campaign / lobbying strategies
  • Experience in high level engagement with government and the private sector
  • Demonstrated commitment to transparency and anti-corruption
  • Qualifications and experience in the social sciences, international development or other relevant field.
