Publish What You Fund
London, UK
Full time Staff

Publish What You Fund is the global campaign for aid and development transparency. We are an independent NGO combining robust research and technical expertise with targeted advocacy in order to make aid and development efforts more transparent and effective.

We are currently recruiting for two roles to support an exciting new project aimed at increasing the transparency of Development Finance Institutions (DFIs). We will examine the use of public money by DFIs to meet global development goals, including the Sustainable Development Goals. As more and more development aid is delivered through private institutions, we will utlize an evidence-based approach to advocate for greater transparency and accountability of DFIs, key drivers of private sector development projects.

Are you keen to use your research experience to investigate international development finance? Do you want to use your communication and analytical skills to advocate for more effective use of aid and development assistance? 

The Research Assistant will be the intellectual focal point for the DFI project. You will be responsible for supporting the delivery of various work streams, executing research (literature reviews, interviews, primary and secondary data collation, and analysis) and producing high quality research outputs (policy briefs, issue papers, reports). You will be part of a small but high impact team, with the opportunity to contribute to discussions across a range of work and support wider organisational learning. 

Administrative Assistant

Do you have experience in project administration and logistics management? Are you interested in using your skills to improve international aid and development?

As the Administrative Assistant, you will be part of a small but high impact team, with the opportunity to contribute to discussions across a range of work and support wider organisational learning. You will manage all logistical aspects for the project, including grant administration, event planning, flight and hotel bookings, expense claims and stakeholder communications. We are seeking an individual with strong organisational skills and an ability to manage multiple work streams and events.

Both roles report directly to the project manager. They are full time positions, based in London and is only open to candidates who have the right to live and work in the United Kingdom.
