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.
UN Women work in Ukraine focuses on supporting the government and civil society in advancing gender equality and implementation of the national and international commitments on gender equality and women’s human rights. UN Women Ukraine implements interventions towards the realization of following strategic goals: elimination of violence against women and girls; implementation of women, peace and security agenda and gender responsive governance. UN Women works closely with the UN Country Team in integration of women’s rights and gender equality in all spheres of UN work.
Since the beginning of Russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine, National Police investigators have initiated about 58,484 criminal proceedings based on the facts of crimes committed on the territory of Ukraine by Russian servicepersons and their accomplices. In the front-line territories, Ukrainians, including war-affected women and girls are under constant shelling, they do not have basic means of subsistence: water, electricity, heat, and a roof over their heads.
While men’s lives are deeply impacted by the conscription requirement, the multisectoral impact of the crisis is affecting women disproportionally. Women constitute the majority of those displaced within and outside of the country, and they face significantly increased safety and protection risks. Incidents of gender-based violence (GBV), particularly domestic violence and conflict-related sexual violence, are reportedly increasing.
On the initiative of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration, with the assistance of the Government Commissioner for Gender Policy, with the support of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and local authorities in Ukraine, a network of survivor assistance centers is being created. Professional teams of psychologists, lawyers, and social workers have been already working in the centers in four Ukrainian cities — Zaporizhzhia, Dnipro, Lviv, and Kyiv. Specialists qualitatively and free of charge help people get out of stress, find inner support, and understand what to do specifically to adapt to new conditions and return to a normal life. It is planned to open another survivor assistance center in Chernivtsi soon.2 Psychological, legal and information assistance is provided to victims of any kind of violence, including conflict-related sexual violence.
UN Women Office in Ukraine will contribute to support the work of the survivor assistance centers, in particular within its project “Transformative Approaches to Achieving Gender Equality in Ukraine”, funded by Sweden, aimed at employing transformative approaches to the advancement of gender equality and women’s empowerment through removing the root causes, structural barriers, and restrictive social norms, that underpin the persistence of gender inequalities in various areas of life. The project partners with the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration and engages the following key institutions at the same time: the government, the parliament, women’s organizations, media and the private sector.
As part of its work within the above project, UN Women is looking for a National Consultant to Assist the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration in Communications Related to the Work of the Survivor Assistance Centers.
