EU project positions

EU Confidence Building Measures Programme is looking for a Communication and Media Officer.

Project Officer/Communication and Media - European Union - Confidence Building Measures Programme

The new phase of EU Confidence Building Measures Programme, funded by the European Union and implemented by UNDP, has the overall objective to contribute to the facilitation of the settlement of the Transnistrian conflict by supporting the increase of confidence between Chisinau and Tiraspol through joint initiatives involving local authorities, civil society organizations and other stakeholders from both sides of the river.

Specific objectives of the EU CBM programme:

  • To contribute to economic and social development by ensuring a more equal access to the opportunities provided by the AA and its DCFTA and integration between the two banks of the Nistru River;
  • To tackle the growing disparity between the Transnistrian Region and the rest of the country by supporting local development and CSOs;
  • To continue supporting the sectoral rapprochement in pilot sectors (i.e. Culture and others) and to progressively include Transnistria in Moldovan-wide development initiatives in order to facilitate the future reintegration while limiting the development gap between both banks;
  • To support the activities of media on both banks of Nistru river through common media production.

The programme will represent a framework for engaging in development interventions across the security zone on both sides of the Nistru/Dniestr River, in line with agreements reached in the 5+2 negotiation process. As such, it is comprised of a series of activities that will strengthen, regularize and intensify interaction between otherwise divided societies, aiming to establish this interaction as a norm. It looks to deal strategically with barriers to cooperation experienced by all development cooperation actors working in Transnistria by building the trust towards such actions and broadening opportunities for engagement for a wide range of actors. Special focus will be given to balancing the actual support of the programme to communities on both banks of the Nistru/Dniestr River.

Under the guidance and direct supervision of the Programme Manager and in coordination with the EU CBM Project Managers, the Communication and Media Officer will ensure visibility and manage all aspects of awareness raising and communication of the EU CBM Programme, in full compliance with the Joint Visibility Guidelines for EC-UN Actions in the Field. The Programme objectives, successes and impacts will be communicated to a large public via print and broadcast media and via high-profile events. The Communication and Media Officer will, under the guidance of the Programme Manager, assume full responsibility for the effective implementation of the communication and visibility activities within EU CBM, including coordination of short-term project experts.
