Job Description


Junior Communication Specialist for the EU Anti-Corruption Initiative


1. The Programme

The EUACI is a joint EU and Government of Denmark financed programme aimed at supporting Ukraine in its efforts to reduce corruption at the national and local level through the empowerment of citizens, civil society, businesses, and state institutions. In May 2020, the EUACI entered into its Phase II that runs until mid-2024.

The overall objective of the EU Anti-Corruption Initiative Phase II is to improve the implementation of the Ukraine’s anti-corruption policy by supporting the key anti-corruption state institutions: strengthening oversight of reform implementation by Parliament; and at national and local level supporting civil society, investigative media, business and local governments, thus substantially improving Ukraine’s overall performance in the fight against corruption.

The context in which the EUACI is working has changed radically since the beginning of the full-scale war. Now four main pillars constitute the foundation of our work:

  • Facilitate that upcoming reconstruction (and current humanitarian) aid are managed and utilised with respect for integrity, transparency and accountability.
  • Support EU integration in anti-corruption, including appropriate reforms and legislative developments that will bring Ukraine closer to the EU.
  • Enhance asset recovery and tracing work to support the policy of sanctions against Russians that are supporting the aggression against Ukraine.
  • Promote resilience of the anti-corruption infrastructure and ensure that EUACI’s partners can continue to function during the war and after Ukraine’s victory.
