Operations Officer, операційний спеціаліст у Київ

Global Communities is implementing the 18-month, Community-Led Emergency Action and Response (CLEAR) program with support from the United States Agency for International Development’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (USAID/BHA) to respond to humanitarian needs in Ukraine. The program is designed with the goal of saving lives, reducing suffering, and addressing needs while supporting communities to lead their own response.

CLEAR will focus on 20 communities Chernivtsi and Chernihiv Oblasts, to be selected jointly with our local partners and based on a rapid needs assessment conducted during co-creation. However, the emphasis will be on communities outside of major city centers that are underserved by the international response. This marries a needs-based response with our unique ready access to more remote communities and existing relationships there for an efficient response. Activities are in line with priorities of the Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal and the Ukrainian government, and all assistance will be aligned with relevant Cluster guidance and Sphere and other standards.


The Operations Officer will be assigned a geographic region of responsibility and will support the Senior Operations Officer and Senior Operations Manager in overseeing daily operations, logistics, and procurement needs of the project.
