Do you have the technical experience managing pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical commodities, Transport, Asset, and maintenance in a humanitarian environment to help UK-Med deliver life-saving medical aid?

UK-Med is a frontline medical aid charity. Born of the NHS, we’ve been working for over 30 years towards a world where everyone has the healthcare they need when crises or disasters hit.

We prepare and equip medical teams, both in the UK and worldwide, so they are ready to respond when epidemics, conflict and natural disasters hit. As a WHO verified emergency medical team, we deploy both as the British government’s implementing partner for the UK EMT and independently as UK Med. When Ebola struck West Africa in 2014, we recruited and trained UK doctors and nurses who helped local medical teams and other NGOs to bring the outbreak under control. We are core partners, providing the clinical component and key support structures of the UK Emergency Medical Team (UK EMT) in line with WHO standards.

We are recruiting a Head of Logistics who will provide leadership across UK EMT partners in ensuring effective logistics arrangements for UK EMT deployment of health facilities.

Our ideal candidate will bring significant experience of providing logistics support in the humanitarian sector (expected to be at least 5 years) including in insecure environments.

You will have excellent interpersonal and leadership skills and be able to bring together people from a range of organisations, cultures, and perspectives into a coherent team.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits along with a friendly working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference through an influential role in our humanitarian programming.
