Dnipro, Ukraine
Position Title: Logistics Specialist 
Receiving Agency: UNICEF
P Level: P3
Location: Dnipro, Ukraine
Duration: 3 months with the possibility of extension
Language: English required, Russian/Ukrainian an asset

The Level 3 Scale-up for Ukraine was activated effective 5 March 2022, for an initial period of six months.  With the activation of the procedure, UNICEF has adopted a no-regrets approach in view of the complex situation and increasing humanitarian needs, to ensure that UNICEF continues to provide life- saving response for the children and women in Ukraine in line with the CCCs.

The recent escalation in the armed conflict in Ukraine poses an immediate threat to the lives and wellbeing of the country’s 7.5 million children. The intensification of the armed conflict is posing severe human costs, causing a growing number of civilian and children casualties, interrupting livelihoods and damaging critical civilian infrastructure, including hundreds of homes, water and sanitation infrastructure, schools and health facilities. Hundreds of thousands of children and their families have been internally displaced and, to-date, over one million forced to flee the country in search of safety – the majority are women and children.

In response, UNICEF has already mobilized organization-wide support. However, the deteriorating situation and complex operating environment requires strengthened capacity and sustained efforts to further expand our presence and work in those parts of the country that can be safely accessed, to strengthen our cluster and overall humanitarian leadership, and to continue scaling-up our humanitarian action, with priority focus on child protection, health, WASH, nutrition, learning, cash interventions and social protection efforts.  UNICEF is also coordinating with refugee hosting countries to prepare and respond to the humanitarian needs emerging from population movements.
