Фахівець(-чиня) із нарощування потенціалу/Capacity Sharing officer

Location: Kyiv

Period:            1 years with a high possibility of extension 

Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe (DKH) is a German non-government organization (NGO) that renders humanitarian aid in 31 countries with 13 offices across the world. DKH supports people who are affected by crisis related to natural hazards, war, and displacement and focuses on locally-led responses by working in collaboration with a global network of partner organizations. Fostering localized humanitarian action and a long-term equal partnership approach lies at the very core of our work.

Continuously striving to facilitate mutual learning and capacity exchange, DKH aims to identify innovative and customized programmatic approaches and cooperation models. The organization actively seeks to shift power to local partners and communities through the transfer of decision-making opportunities to directly address their own priorities. DKH is part of the Protestant Agency for Diakonie and Development (EWDE) based in Berlin, Germany.—this statement is the most crucial as it not only outlines the unit/ department where the position is situated and how its objectives and deliverables align with the organization’s mission, but also provides a concise overview of the job’s role in contributing to and supporting that mission, referencing the expected grade level and key attributes of the employee needed for successful execution of responsibilities.

DKH Ukraine Country Office has been established towards the middle of 2023. Currently DKH Ukraine has seven partner organizations (PO) in Ukraine and seven PO in neighboring countries. While DKH Ukraine is not planning to direct implement humanitarian projects, it wants to ensure that the partner organisations in Ukraine and the neighboring countries have the administrative and technical capacities to implement their projects and programs according to highest quality standards possible. DKH wants to ensure that the humanitarian response in Ukraine and the neighboring countries is meeting expectations in all relevant aspects, that DKH can fully rely on the partner organizations, and an added value becomes visible through the own presence on the ground. 

DKH`s Ukraine working fields are Basic Needs, Shelter, Winterization, Protection/MHPSS, Livelihood, Humanitarian Demining
