Background Information - Job-specific

The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) is an operational arm of the United Nations, supporting the successful implementation of its partners' peacebuilding, humanitarian and development projects around the world.  Mandated as a central resource of the United Nations, UNOPS provides sustainable project management, procurement and infrastructure services to a wide range of governments, donors and United Nations organizations. With over 8,000 personnel spread across 80 countries, UNOPS offers its partners the logistical, technical and management knowledge they need, where they need it.  By implementing around 1,000 projects for its partners at any given time, UNOPS makes significant contributions to results on the ground, often in the most challenging environments.

In response to the request of the Government of Ukraine, UNOPS opened an office in Ukraine (UAOC) in 2017, which provides a broad spectrum of services to the Government and the people of Ukraine. Currently, its portfolio of projects exceeds USD 100 million and covers the areas of rule of law, environment, energy efficiency, crisis recovery, good governance, human resources management, procurement, and logistics.  The projects are funded by the European Union (EU), the Government of Ukraine, the Global Fund, UNHCR, USAID, the Japanese Government, and the Canadian Government.
