The Prosecutor’s General Office of Ukraine (PGO) is conducting the final stage of the competition to recruit new prosecutors for the local public prosecutor’s offices. On this stage, the candidates are interviewed by the Selection Commissions.
The EU Project “Support to Justice Sector Reforms in Ukraine” has contributed to the drafting of the evaluation grid disseminated to all commissions’ members to ensure consistency of interviewing process. The Project also enabled wider audience to follow the process by providing a live streaming through http://konkurs.gp.gov.ua/.
Since July 2015, the open competition has started to fill out the positions at the local public prosecutor’s offices – both top managerial and ordinary prosecutorial.
“Transparent recruitment of the prosecutors is one of the key elements of the successful reform of the prosecution service. Supporting these initiatives, which would help the prosecution service of Ukraine to retrieve the public trust, is among the main objectives of the EU Project,” – said Loic Guerin, EU Project’s Key Expert on Reform of the Prosecution.
The EU Project, on demand of the PGO, has agreed to provide financial support to this initiative and made it a top priority. The Project has provided the full logistical support of the testing process, which has been held in Kyiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv, Lviv, and Odessa and covered participation of more nearly 11 000 candidates.
More than 10 000 units the General Skills Tests and 2 500 Personality Tests were provided to the GPO in the framework of this support. Ensuring the transparency of the process and quality of the tests, the EU Project carried out the tender competition, with the Hay Group winning among other six companies.
