Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in Ukraine is seeking qualified professionals for U-LEAD with Europe | Ukraine – Local Empowerment, Accountability and Development Programme to fill the position of
Policy Adviser (Decentralisation and Local Self-Government) for the Regional Office in Dnipropetrovsk oblast (full time)
In the last few years, Ukraine has developed and adopted various laws in favour of an ambitious decentralisation reform, which reshapes the relations between the national, regional and local levels and builds institutional capacity. The success of the decentralisation reform greatly depends on the coordination and cooperation between different stakeholders involved into reform implementation at the national, regional and local levels. Given the important new tasks, responsibilities and financial resources that local self-governments have gained, the implementation of the reform has to be accompanied by expert advice, trainings and diverse support measures. U-LEAD (Ukraine - Local Empowerment, Accountability and Development) is a special measure which is conducted as a multi-donor action by the EU and its member states Germany, Estonia, Sweden, Denmark, Slovenia and Poland to support the Ukrainian government in the implementation of the decentralisation reform.
For our regional team in Dnipropetrovsk oblast we are looking for an experienced and highly motivated policy adviser with an innovative mind-set, a strong team player with solid knowledge of decentralisation and legal aspects of local self-government with the practical experience of supporting hromadas in the course of decentralisation reform implementation.
