What is Anti-Corruption Work?

Job posting boards and aggregates have featured an increasing number of positions in Anti-Corruption Careers Since the beginning of 2013. Job seekers may wonder what that industry entails and may think about politics and banking when they hear the word corruption.

Simplified, anti-corruption as a whole seeks to make public and private, domestic and international business transacations transparent and legal in a variety of iindustry sectors.


Where Are Anti-Corruption Jobs in the USA?

From early 2013 through 2017 American companies advertised approximately 500 to 1,000 anti-corruption related positions at any time. The number of openings advertised rose to over 1,400 positions in the spring 2015 and declined to a steady 500 or more during the remainder of the time interval.

The largest numbers of openings are usually found in the larger metro areas of New York City; Washington DC; nearby Quantico/Norfolk/McLean/Arlington VA; Houston/San Antonio/Dallas TX; San Francisco; Chicago; and Columbus OH. Many of these large metro areas are involved economically with either large businesses and non-profits, government and defense missions, or both.

In the new 21st Century Space Race, anti-corruption work may increase, because competitions between nations is high in securing rights to celestial bodies for work in Asteroid Mining since 2012, Lunar Habitation since 2013, and Missions to Mars (privately planned for 2018).

Large sums of money are involved in all of these endeavors, as well as extraordinary interest shown by several global countries, individual investors, and private businesses.

In the Health and Medical Industry, anti-corruption work is important in cases of potential fraud related to claims and reporting of personal injury, Workers Compensation, SSI/SSDI, Medicare, Medicade, prescription drugs, and others.
