Security situation in Ukraine:
Humanitarian workers continue to operate throughout Ukraine, despite the occasional shelling, which has intensified since 10 October 2022. However, PIN security SOPs require PIN staff to proceed to shelter each time during an air raid siren and remain there until the air raid siren is cancelled, which cumulatively can be several times a week for several hours a day. Air strikes have mostly targeted energy-related infrastructure, resulting in frequent power outages and occasionally water supply disruptions throughout Kyiv, affecting the living conditions of PIN staff in the city. However, most services such as medical care, shops, public transportation as well as restaurants or leisure facilities remain operational.
The employee is expected to be able to travel to other PIN offices and other locations where PIN is conducting activities, however all travel must first be pre-approved by PIN security department. The employee must comply with all PIN security department SOPs and other relevant instructions.
This position is an unaccompanied position and team members are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner and respect local laws, customs and PIN's policies, procedures, and values at all times and in all in-country venues.
