The EU-funded Project “Technical Assistance to support CSO development in the Republic of Moldova” is looking for one Junior Expert for ad hoc support to sub-grantees.

The above Technical Assistance project  has a duration of 3 years and it is implemented by a Consortium led by KMOP- Family and Childcare Centre (Greece) . Its implementation has started in September 2017 and it aims at further contributing to civil society development, capacity building and empowering of civil society organisations for becoming a stronger actor in decision and policy making in Moldovan society.

The overall objective of the TA contract is to contribute to the development of civil society in becoming a stronger actor, including in actively participating in decision and policy-making and implementation processes of the EU-Moldova Association Agreement with the aim of enhancing domestic accountability and transparency.

One of the components of the project is Technical Assistance to beneficiaries and sub-grantees of the call EuropeAid/152768/DH/ACT. The main purpose of the actions financed within the grant scheme under the Civil Society Facility is the provision of financial support to third parties. The Call for Proposals was designed in such a way as to allow small, grassroots organisations to cooperate with larger, well-established applicants through the mechanism of financial support to third parties. Grassroots and smaller organisations often lack the capacity to apply directly for EU funding, so the arrangements under the Call gave them access to EU funds, as sub-grantees.

-the ensuring of technical assistance to EU grant beneficiaries to implement EU funded projects and to comply with EU rules and procedures and,
