On 24 February 2022, the military of the Russian Federation invaded Ukraine, with strikes across the territory of Ukraine. Since then, Russia’s invasion imposes a severe humanitarian and socio-economic toll, global energy and food crisis, large-scale destruction of the country's infrastructure, and disruptions in the provision of critical services and degradation of social fabrics and communities’ ties, triggering one of the world’s most significant forced displacements. 

Severe attacks on energy and critical infrastructure facilities leave millions of people without electricity, water or heating supply, struggling to access water, food, health services, materials to repair homes, among others. The continued attacks cause substantial damage to the country’s economy and agricultural production, and also affect the poorest countries worldwide.

UNOPS support to partners spans the humanitarian-development nexus from emergency response to building back better, across the housing, health, education, transport, energy and mine action sectors, through infrastructure, procurement and technical assistance / project management interventions, with the ultimate aim of supporting the country on its EU accession and in its achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Reporting to the Deputy Portfolio Manager - Planning (DPM-P), responsibilities include developing resource mobilization opportunities, monitoring trends, drafting programme documents, preparing high-quality reports, and ensuring compliance with programme documents and funding agreements. Additionally, the incumbent supports stakeholder coordination, participates in inter-agency meetings, and aids in communication strategies. The individual also maintains program documentation, implements standards and best practices, contributes to knowledge and risk management processes, and performs other related duties as assigned by the DPM-P.
