The U-LEAD with Europe Programme announced vacancies for the heads of regional offices in the Dnipropetrovsk, Zhytomyr, Ivano-Frankivsk, Kyiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, Kherson and Khmelnytskyi Oblasts.
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 the 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 and Poland to support the Ukrainian government in the implementation of the decentralisation reform.
For managing, coordination and support to our regional teams in the mentioned above 8 oblasts of Ukraine, we are looking for highly motivated Heads of U-LEAD Regional Offices with an innovative mind-set, management experience and excellent knowledge of the Ukrainian government's decentralisation reform.
