Deadline: Friday, 8 July, 2022
Location: Remote, preferably based in Ukraine, or a neighbouring country
Salary: $18,000 – $36,000 per annum commensurate to experience + benefits
Term: 6-month fixed term contract
Street Child, a global child-focussed INGO, are seeking a bilingual individual, who is fluent in both Ukrainian and English, and wants to be involved in supporting our response to the Ukraine crisis. This is a fantastic opportunity to become a member of a new and growing team delivering Street Child’s protection and education-in-emergencies programme inside Ukraine. The role will require a motivated and enthusiastic candidate to support multiple local NGO partners to implement a flagship UN-funded humanitarian project, as well as broader Street Child activity in Ukraine. The right candidate will play a key role in assisting senior project staff to manage relationships with the Ukrainian NGO partners and supporting partners to ensure that high quality programmes are implemented.
We are looking for candidates with a ‘can-do’ attitude and willingness to support wherever needed. This is a demanding role and is suited to individuals who enjoy being busy and involved in a variety of tasks. In return it is an excellent opportunity to gain valuable skills and experience in a globally renowned international development NGO. Prior NGO experience will be highly beneficial but is not essential.
Key responsibilities include:
• Acting as a key focal point for all local NGO partners
• Acting as a crucial link between the partners and the global programmes team in the UK, especially with interpretation
• Supporting monitoring and evaluation exercises within Ukraine
• Working closely with partners to ensure projects are implemented to a high standard and in a timely, cost-effective manner
• Work with the wider team to develop key stakeholder relationships
Street Child believes that every child deserves the chance to go to school and learn. Our projects focus on a combination of education, child protection and livelihood support to address the social, economic and structural issues that underpin today’s education crisis. We partner with local organisations and communities to deliver our locally rooted programmes, using evidence to drive learning and the refinement and scale-up of programmes to create maximum impact for the most children at the lowest cost. We pride ourselves on being willing to go to the world’s toughest places where others won’t, including remote, hard-to-reach areas and fragile, disaster-affected states across Europe, sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. Since 2008 we have helped over 706,000 children to go to school and learn and supported over 82,000 families to set up businesses so they can afford the cost of educating their children. Ukraine is our newest programme, through which we are working with partners in Ukraine, Moldova and Romania to provide humanitarian, psychosocial and educational support to children affected by the war, and their families.
