The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) helps the United Nations (UN) and its partners provide peace and security, humanitarian, and development solutions. UNOPS services cover infrastructure, project management, procurement, financial management and human resources. 

In response to the request of the Government of Ukraine, UNOPS opened an office in Ukraine in 2017, which provides a broad spectrum of services to the Government and the people of Ukraine. Currently, the office is classified as a Country Office (UACO), with a portfolio of projects exceeding USD 100 million, in the areas of rule of law, environment, energy efficiency, crisis recovery, good governance, human resources management, procurement, and logistics. 

The European Union-funded project ‘Support for Rule of Law Reforms in the Areas of Police, Public Prosecution and Good Governance’ (hereinafter - Project) has the overall objective of supporting the strengthening of policing, prosecution and civilian governance in Ukraine and to align them with the best European and International practices. On matters of substance, the project relies on the EU Advisory Mission (EUAM) to Ukraine.

The Project supports the creation of an efficient law-enforcement system respectful of human rights through the provision of necessary support to the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the National Police of Ukraine (NPU), the State Bureau of Investigations (SBI), the Office of the Prosecutor General (OPG).

The current assignment relates to the scope of the Project’s support measures for the OPG, aligned with the Justice Sector Reform Strategy, the Justice Reform Action Plan for 2015-2020 and directly supports the implementation of priority areas identified in the Roadmap of Prosecutorial Reform. In particular, the Project will develop and deliver a series of specialised permanent training activities in the areas identified with the OPG and the Prosecutor’s Training Centre of Ukraine (PTCU) that is responsible for the training of candidate prosecutors and prosecutors-practitioners. Where possible, both traditional format and e-learning will be applied, and user-friendly guidelines and handbooks will be produced. 

This activity is fully in line with the Strategy of Professional Education of Candidate Prosecutors and Public Prosecutors since it is aiming to enhance teaching methods, curricula, and training materials of the existing training programmes and for the introduction of new ones, if necessary. 

Under the supervision of the Senior Programme Manager or his designee, and with regular coordination with experts from EUAM and assigned representatives of the OPG and PTCU, the Consultant will provide practical specialised mentorship and design, implement, and evaluate training interventions aimed at the capacity building within the staff of the Prosecution Service, the Office of the Prosecutors General of Ukraine and the PTCU in Kyiv.
