Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in Ukraine is seeking qualified professionals for U-LEAD with Europe | Ukraine - Local Empowerment, Accountability and Development Programme to fill the position of Junior Administrative Specialist (full-time, Lviv)
(internal SAP code: Junior Administrative Specialist)
In the last few years, Ukraine has developed and adopted various laws in favour of an ambitious decentralization reform, which reshapes the relations between the national, regional and local levels and builds institutional capacity.
