Programme Title: GBV Response and Prevention Programme
Post Title: Communication Assistant
Post Level: Service Contract, SB3/1
Duration of the service: one year with possible extension
Duty Station: Kyiv
Full/part time: Full time

The position:
Under the supervision of Communication Associate and in close coordination with GBV Programme Manager, the Communication Assistant contributes to the design, coordination and implementation of communication and advocacy interventions of the UNFPA GBV Response and Prevention Programme. Communication Assistant supports development and implementation of innovative communication and awareness-raising interventions to maximise impact of the GBV Programme work, making a sound contribution to strengthening security and protection of Ukrainian women and girls from gender-based violence.

How you can make a difference:
UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. The Fund operates globally since 1969 in more than 150 countries and territories. UNFPA focuses on women and young people, because these are the groups whose rights are often compromised. UNFPA has been active in Ukraine since 1997.

In accordance with the organisational mandate and national development priorities of Ukraine, UNFPA implements a country programme of technical assistance to Ukraine for 2018-2022. Among several priorities, the country programme seeks to contribute to the development of robust national system of response and prevention of domestic and gender-based violence (GBV), establish functional intersectoral coordination and accountability mechanisms and enhance institutional capacities at the national and regional levels to ensure that majority of gender-based violence survivors seek and have access to good quality survivor-centred services, and Ukrainian society finds GBV unacceptable.

Since the start of the large-scale military invasion of Russia to Ukraine in February 2022, UNFPA implements a comprehensive nationwide Humanitarian Response Plan to provide life-saving GBV and SRH services to women and girls across Ukraine.

Through its GBV Response and Prevention Programme, UNFPA contributes to improving protection and security of women and girls, and thus, their willingness to participate in community life, including in war-affected communities. Women’s engagement and empowerment in community dialogue, including in displacement, is essential for laying a strong foundation for recovery and sustainable peace and development.

UNFPA is seeking highly-motivated candidates that share our passion of making a sound contribution to creating a Ukrainian society free from gender-based violence. We need strong professionals who are attentive to details, proactive, committed to excellence and keen to deliver high impact and sustained results.

Job Purpose:
The UNFPA GBV Response and Prevention Programme interventions cover all regions of Ukraine and focuses on the delivery of the following outcomes:

Increased perception of the unacceptability of gender-based violence in Ukrainian society.
Improved equitable access of GBV survivors and people at risk to survivor-centred services.
Establishment of mechanisms of accountability to beneficiaries at the national and local levels.

Communication Assistant supports the implementation of communication and advocacy interventions that contribute to the achievement of the Outcome 1 with the strategic aim of fostering zero tolerance to GBV in Ukrainian society including provision of communication support to UNFPA response to GBV and CRSV in humanitarian settings and post-war early recovery settings.
