Agriculture and Rural Development Support Project
Rural Development Specialist
Position Description
Background: The USAID Agriculture and Rural Development Support project, hereinafter ARDS, is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). ARDS builds on USAID’s previous projects in Ukraine and lessons learned by USAID/Ukraine, Ukrainian partners, and other donors. ARDS is implemented by Chemonics International, Inc. and began on September 7, 2016 and is scheduled to end on July 30, 2020.
ARDS was designed to support broad based, resilient economic growth through a more inclusive, competitive, and better governed agriculture that provides attractive livelihoods in rural areas. ARDS works both at the national and regional level, with a special focus on rural development in southern and eastern Ukraine. For its work in agriculture value chains, ARDS is primarily focusing on dairy, fruits and vegetables, and meat. In rural areas, ARDS has flexibility to expand beyond agriculture into non-farm related employment generation. ARDS embraces the collaborating, learning, and adapting (CLA) framework promoted by USAID. Across all tasks of the contract, ARDS works with government institutions, private sector entities, and other partners in planning, monitoring, mapping outcomes, and thereafter scaling up what works and/or adapting by redesigning strategies and tactics employed to implement tasks.
Position Description
The Rural Develop Specialist focuses on improving the lives of rural Ukrainian families through working with the private sector, communities, and local governments to implement innovative solutions to address rural unemployment. The Specialist will manage a combination of short-term technical consultants, grants, and contracts focused improving systemic constraints to productivity and market access for Ukrainian SMEs. The Specialist’s responsibilities include serving as a task team leader; presenting results and constraints against the work plan during quarterly reviews, preparing scopes of work for short-term technical advisors, preparing scopes of work for grants or contracts; reporting on monthly results, and collaborating and learning with market actors and donor projects. The Specialist will provide technical leadership for rural development (both agriculture and non-agriculture) and bring to bear global innovations to help businesses solve systemic constraints to growth at the local level. Since the focus of the Specialists work will be rural communities, he/she will be expected to spend no less than 40% of the time in the regions of Ukraine working with those communities.

  • Identify leverage points of new opportunities, promote appropriate collaborations, identify interventions and scale-up best practices;
  • Serve as the ARDS resident expert on rural development;
  • Assume any other duties as assigned by the Markets and Rural Development Director
  • At least ten years’ previous experience in agribusiness, private sector rural development initiatives, or leadership role on donor funded agriculture development projects
