Creation of jobs is one of the main development vectors for financially-capable hromadas. This is not only the employment of local residents, but also a reliable source of revenues to the AH budget. The so far young amalgamated hromada of the Novi Sanzhary Rayon understands it well. The sewing production unit has been recently opened here. Local residents received seamstress and a cutter’s positions. The work of the unit became possible due to the constructive cooperation of the AH leadership and the Novi Sanzhary rayon branch of the oblast employment centre. Anatoliy Troyan, head of the Malopereshchepynska AH, and Larysa Palko, head of the employment centre branch, had a systematic approach to the creation of new workplaces in the hromada. Previous negotiations with investor were held, a mini-fair of vacancies, informational and explanatory meetings with the public were organised. In the shortest terms they found a free space, carried out repairs, and brought sewing equipment. Besides, 8 people out of shortlisted applicants are sent to vocational training at the Centre of Vocational Education of the Poltava Oblast Employment Centre, 3 persons are being trained directly at the enterprise. This is not a single example of constructive cooperation between the Novi Sanzhary Rayon Employment Office and AHs of the rayon. Currently, the staff is being recruited for a well-known stocking factory, which main production facilities are located in the Machukhivska AH. This AH was created last year and became the first in Ukraine to include settlements of three rayons (Poltava, Novi Sanzhary, and Reshetylivka).
“Only the hromada, that will ensure stability for its residents, will have development prospects. This means, first and foremost, official employment not only giving confidence to people, but also providing systematic filling of the AH budget. The success of the decentralisation reform is illustrative in this case,” said Iryna Balybina, director of the Poltava Local Government Development Centre, established with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme and MinRegion.
