The position of a Director for the DRA Resource Centre in Slоviansk (Donetsk oblast) is available from 15th June 2019. The post is full-time (40h/week).
Background: Social life in eastern Ukraine has been severely impacted by the conflict. Many active citizens and civil society organisations had to move from their hometowns, many communities received new citizens which changed their societal fabric and relations. DRA sees active grass-roots networks and working horizontal structures in communities as a prerequisite for building a sustainable, prosperous and democratic society. The DRA Resource Centre will support active citizens and, in particular, young people in Sloviansk and other cities in the conflict region providing them with educational and development opportunities, supporting grass-roots initiatives aimed at community development and a peaceful resolution of the conflict. The centre will facilitate the development of local civil society by building their communication and cooperation networks with activists from the EU countries and other regions of Ukraine, professional exchanges and volunteer projects.
About the organisation: DRA is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Berlin, working since 1992 with the aim of promoting democratic developments in Ukraine, Russia and other East European countries through cooperation with Ukrainian, Russian, Belarusian and other European NGOs, with independent mass media and in cross-sectoral cooperation.
