The International Tax Compact is looking for an Advisor (f/m) to support the Addis Tax Initiative

Field of activity

The International Tax Compact (ITC) is an informal platform that aims to enhance domestic revenue mobilization in partner countries, and to promote fair, efficient and transparent tax systems.

The ITC brings together a broad variety of actors from development partners and partner countries working in the field of tax and development, including policymakers, administrators, experts, academics as well as civil society and private sector representatives, in order to pool available capacities, foster cooperation and create synergies without duplicating existing structures and efforts.

Since the Financing for Development Conference in Addis Ababa in July 2015, the ITC hosts the Secretariat of the Addis Tax Initiative.

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has launched the platform in 2009 and commissioned the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) to facilitate the ITC Secretariat.

Since April 2017, the European Union is supporting the ITC through a co-financing agreement. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands (BZ) provides in-kind support. 

The ITC Secretariat is located in Bonn / Germany.
