UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.

UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.


UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.

In Ukraine, UN Women is committed to delivering results across strategic priorities, exercising its triple mandate encompassing normative support, UN system coordination, and operational activities to mobilize urgent and sustained action to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. UN Women has long been actively supporting local priority areas in Ukraine from increased political participation to gender mainstreaming in public policy, and economic development.

The full-scale invasion of Ukraine has had a profoundly negative impact on the lives of women and men, girls and boys, causing widespread destruction, displacement and suffering. According to Ukraine Humanitarian Response Plan for 2023,  nearly 18 million people, out of whom 6.7 million are internally displaced, are in need of humanitarian assistance. Multiple forms of gender-based violence (GBV), including intimate partner violence, sexual exploitation and abuse, sexual harassment, conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) and economic exploitation, are being reported, exacerbating the pre-war situation. With women constituting the majority of refugees from Ukraine and those displaced within the country, the multisectoral impact of the war affects women disproportionately through such factors as increased care responsibilities, reduced access to livelihoods and increased threat of gender-based violence.

As part of its response to the social and economic impact of the war, UN Women implements the project “Strengthening Gender Responses and Prevention of Violence against Women and Girls in Ukraine Humanitarian and Refugee Crisis”, funded by the Government of Japan, which seeks to address some of the most pressing issues facing women affected by the impacts of war, within Ukraine and for refugees in neighbouring countries. The primary objective of the project is to enable Ukrainian women and girls affected by the war to have access to high-quality, coordinated protection and livelihood services and have increased resources and capacities to build resilience in their families and communities.

Towards this end, UN Women is seeking a Programme Analyst to provide programme support to the effective management of UN Women programmes in the Ukraine CO by contributing to the programme design, formulation, implementation and evaluation.  Reporting to Programme Specialist, the Programme Analyst supports the delivery of UN Women programmes by analysing results achieved during implementation and supporting the appropriate application of systems and procedures.
