Transparency, Integrity and Accountability Programme (TIP) Intern

Reports to: Senior Technical Advisor (Output 3 Lead)

Duration: Six (6) Months


The Intern will assist the Output 3 task team of the Transparency, Integrity and Accountability Programme (TIP) with supporting the formation and formalisation of multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs) composed of representatives from government, civil society and the private sector. Output 3 focuses on MSPs to increase transparency, integrity and accountability in South Africa and specifically in the Gauteng Province. The three focus areas of the MSPs are whistleblowing and corruption reporting, open public procurement and business integrity. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and co-financed by the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) functions as a secretariat to the MSPs. The longer-term goal is that the MSPs develop instruments (guidelines, digital tools, policy research etc) contributing to the implementation of the National Anti-corruption Strategy (NACS).


The intern will support the output 3 with preparing, organizing and documenting meetings and other forms of engagement of the relevant stakeholders. The immediate objective of those meetings is the commitment to joint goals and the formulation of action plans on how to achieve those goals. GIZ also assists the (future) MSPs with trainings on stakeholder engagement methodologies as well as with the clarification of their roles, rules and decision-making processes. The intern will support those processes.
