Please, look through this guide for safer employment in order to be aware of the signs of legal employment and prevent exploitation.

"If you are a Ukrainian citizen, you have entered Romania legally and have not requested protection (for example, asylum), you can work without a job permit. You will not need to obtain a visa to get a job. Suppose you want to work in a field where you have experience or have studied and do not have the necessary documents (diplomas, certifications, attestations). In that case, you will give a statement that you have had training or experience in the field (one of the requirements is not to have active criminal acts).

This declaration (ro or uk) is valid for 12 months but can be extended for 6 months or 1 year, during which you will have all the rights and obligations provided by the labour law. 

If you have studied medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy, architecture or any liberal profession and want to work in Romania, you must have the necessary documents. 

Also, the Ukrainian citizens who arrived in Romania due to the armed conflict can benefit from measures to stimulate employment, as well as protection within the unemployment insurance system, under the conditions provided by law for Romanian citizens, provided they register with the agencies for the employment of the county, respectively of the Bucharest municipality. See here the free services ANOFM (National Agency for Employment) offered." from Dopomoha.

If you want to work in your domain, but your education documents are not confirmed in accordance with EU requirements, you can fill out a declaration provided by the Ministry of Labour in Romania, where under your own responsibility you indicate your education, describe the skills, experience, etc. Personal responsibility declaration regarding the fulfilment of the conditions of professional qualification and experience:
