United Nations Development Programme

Programme Manager - P5

Ukraine, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast , Dnipro

BACKGROUNDUNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.UNDP does not tolerate sexual exploitation and abuse, any kind of harassment, including sexual harassment, and discrimination. All selected candidates will, therefore, undergo rigorous reference and background checks.The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to eradicate poverty, reduce inequalities and exclusion, and build resilience so countries can sustain progress. As the development arm of the United Nations, UNDP supports strategic capacity development initiatives to promote inclusive growth and sustainable human development. Through partnerships with national, regional, and local governments, civil society, and the private sector, UNDP strives to support Ukraine in its efforts to eliminate poverty, develop people's capacity, achieve equitable results, sustain the environment, and advance democratic governance.In Ukraine, UNDP has been working since 1993 with the Government and local authorities, partners across the UN system, civil society and local communities to help identify and develop targeted solutions to the country's development challenges.  We work in close collaboration with several key ministries, departments, and agencies in a robust, integrated manner in three thematic priorities/portfolios:Inclusive Development, Recovery and Peacebuilding,Democratic Governance, andEnergy and EnvironmentSince 24 February 2022, complex humanitarian, development, and peace challenges have been emerging in Ukraine, underscoring the importance of programming that responds to the multiple dimensions of the crisis. In April 2022, UNDP launched the Resilience Building and Recovery Framework for Ukraine grounded in working in close partnership with various government and development partners. The need for enhanced crisis/emergency coordination and response planning between the central government, the oblasts/rayons and other stakeholders (international community, CSOs, private sector) is becoming more and more critical for Ukraine to ensure delivery of services and build stronger resilience of the receiving/host communities and of the displaced. Drawing from past experiences and aiming to bolster the resilience and recovery of communities affected by war in target areas of Ukraine, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Ukraine, in response to the war, launched in October 2022 the "EU4RecoveryEmpowering Communities in Ukraine" (EU4Recovery) programme. The key objective of the programme is to support the strengthened resilience and early recovery of war-affected communities in selected target areas of Ukraine through: a) increased access to quality public services that respond to the needs of all population groups, with a particular focus on the most vulnerable; b) enhanced community security and maintained social fabric maintained in project target areas (Poltava, Dnipro, Chernihiv, Sumy, Kherson, Kharkiv and Zaporizhzhia oblasts). In this regard, UNDP Ukraine invites applications from highly qualified and experienced professionals for the post of International Programme Manager.  The incumbent will be primarily responsible for the successful management of the EU4Recovery programme and also other related area-based UNDP interventions in the conflict-affected areas of Ukraine. Area based development (ABD) is an approach which offers an integrated, participatory, and inclusive methodology to advance sustainable human development in specific geographically defined target areas that face distinctive complex challenges or vulnerabilities.  UNDP experience has shown that it makes most sense in post-conflict environments, where the sheer complexities of the challenges call for comprehensive, integrated multi-agency, multi-sector and multi-level responses, and above-all flexibility, to adequately respond to sometimes rapidly changing conditions.An ABD approach, in which multiple strands of programming are implemented in the same place, and at the same time, allows complex challenges to be addressed, and links up  to UNDP R4 Recovery Framework which presents a multi-dimensional nexus programming, aimed at reconstruction and socio-economic recovery, durable solutions for IDPs and refugees, and accelerated return to development pathways DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIESThe Programme Manager will directly manage the group of area-based projects implemented in the conflict-affected areas of Ukraine and contribute to the efforts of the UNDP Country Office in the respective programmatic area. S/he will also supervise the team, coordinate the joint implementation with participating UN Agencies, and ensure the program's success through planning, implementing, and managing innovative policies and practices, capacity building, project monitoring and assurance, advocacy, and knowledge services. The incumbent will oversee the joint implementation of the UN multi-agency recovery efforts in partnership with national and regional governmental authorities, serving as the key focal point for all related coordination and implementation tasks.The incumbent will work under the overall guidance and direct supervision of the UNDP Deputy Resident Representative (Programme) and day-to-day collaboration with the portfolio manager of the Inclusive Development, Recovery and Peace Building portfolio (IDRPB) in the UNDP country office. S/he will lead the provision of substantive advice on all aspects of area-based programming, inclusive and sustainable recovery, and participatory local governance and other related areas to the Senior Management Team and liaise closely with other project managers and portfolio managers on pertinent development topics to ensure a multi-sectoral integrated development solutions approach for the conflict-affected areas of Ukraine.The Programme Manager will prioritize gender equality and women's empowerment within all implementations and promote UNDP's mandate as a gender-responsive organization with zero tolerance for any kind of discriminatory and abusive behavior, including sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, and abuse. Impact of results: The key results have a significant impact on the overall success of the UNDP's programming and UNDP Strategic positioning to support the Government and the war conflict affected oblast and hromada administrations' priorities such as increased access to quality public services, increased community security, maintained social fabric. In particular, the key results have an impact on the design, operation and implementation of the UNDP area-based programme.UNDP adopts a portfolio approach to accommodate changing business needs and leverage linkages across interventions to achieve its strategic goals.
