Call For Consultants Grant Financial Reports | European Endowment for Democracy (EED) | Ukraine


The European Endowment for Democracy (EED) is a grant-making organisation which has been established by the EU Member States and the European Union institutions to foster and encourage democratisation and deep and sustainable democracy. EED has been established as an independent private law foundation with its seat in Brussels.


The EED relies on a network of consultants, including in countries of the European Neighbourhood and beyond, to provide support to the EED Secretariat in assessing financial reports from EED grant beneficiaries and provide support and coaching on financial management when necessary. In addition to English, the selected consultant needs to be fluent in Ukranian.

Assignments may range from 1 to 5 days per week, with the exact consultancy fee depending on the nature and complexity of the requested work as well as the experience and track record of the consultant. The number of assignments will be variable, depending on the demand and needs of the EED Secretariat.

The assignments will mainly consist in the revision and assessment of financial reports submitted by beneficiaries as part of EED grants and, when necessary, provision of coaching on financial management in line with EED guidelines. Consultants will be requested to verify correctness and compliance of the reported expenditure (calculations, completeness of supporting documents, eligibility of expenses etc.) with the approved budget and all EED contractual stipulations and, where applicable, to liaise with grant beneficiaries to clarify such reports.

Freelance individuals are equally eligible to apply.

All applicants must be able to issue EED with an invoice for services.

Required Experience

The consultant shall meet the following requirements:

  • at least 3 years of proven professional experience in financial management and/or accounting, preferably of projects/programmes addressed to the civil society in Ukraine;
  • demonstrated track record in financial grant management and/or administering contractual financial and technical reports;
  • experience in accounting and financial audits considered a strong asset;
  • solid knowledge of Ukranian legislation on finance and accounting;
  • thorough knowledge of English, in addition to Ukranian language proficiency;
  • solid ICT skills, with high proficiency in Microsoft Excel;
  • high level of precision, with an eye to detail;
  • ability to keep full confidentiality about all assigned tasks and related documentation as well as able to exercise confidentiality, discretion and tact when dealing with diverse groups of people;
  • ability to develop strong coordination with EED in-house staff;
  • provide references as to the suitability for the performance of duties
  • ability to work independently and meet tight deadlines;


Expressions of interest should be submitted online using the “apply” panel on this page.

Please submit your CV (Europass format required) including a cover letter and contact details for two referees. The cover letter must explain the legal status of the individual, whether they are able to issue EED with an invoice for services, and what is their hour or daily fee.

After successfully submitting your application you will receive an automatic email confirming receipt of your application.

Please no phone calls/emails/letters. Candidates will be contacted only when a suitable assignment may arise. A written test may take place as part of the selection process.

The applications will not be returned to candidates but will be kept on file by the EED for when a suitable opportunity may arise. The information provided in the applications is subject to EU legislation on protection of personal data and confidentiality of information.

The final deadline is open until Friday, 31 August 2023 at 12 midnight Brussels time. The applications will be reviewed on rolling bases, therefore the candidates may be contacted before the end of the call.
