The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine (UMoD) and the State Employment Service are taking steps to improve recruitment by posting military vacancies on the Unified Vacancy Portal.

According to the UMoD's press service, the portal of the State Employment Center will post vacancies that military units publish on the “Robota.ua” job search website. These vacancies will then be offered to unemployed people in the 535 employment centers that operate throughout every region of Ukraine.

Initially this will be limited to non-combat positions in rear areas, with the aim of ensuring the necessary comprehensive logistic and administrative support to the armed forces. However, in the future, the Employment Service is likely to start recruiting candidates it considers suitable for training in all specialties needed by the Defense Forces.

“We continue to develop the recruitment project for the Ukrainian Defense Forces. In the two months of its implementation, we have received more than 40 thousand responses from citizens to vacancies offered on four partner platforms,” Natalia Kalmykova a Deputy Minister of Defense said.

In 2023, the Ministry of Defense signed agreements with four companies that provided the free publishing of Defense Forces’ vacancies on their platforms: Lobby X, Work.ua, Robota.ua, and OLX Ukraine.

On Jan. 7, the Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine Mykhailo Fedorov detailed the development of a digital recruitment project for the armed forces of Ukraine which was aimed at finding drone operators.

Ukrainian Drones Hit Russian Military Factories 1,000 KM Away

Ukrainian intelligence (HUR) told Kyiv Post it struck Russian military production facilities in Tatarstan on May 23 with UAVs.

The Ministry of Digital Transformation is currently in the final trial stage of the project. Several beta tests have been launched with brigades looking for pilot-operators to serve in attack drone units.

“It is difficult to launch this project because we need to rebuild the system. A system where there is no military enlistment office, which essentially tells [candidates] about the opportunities, benefits, and experience that will be offered,” Fedorov said.
