We continuously recruit "supply chain" - knowledgeable logisticians for our projects around the world. You will work with the supply of field work with everything in the logistics chain; we are looking for those with prior coordinating experience; problem solvers that can make things happen - fast!
As supply-logisticians, you are responsible for everything related to material procurement: order management, local / international purchasing , inventory and monitoring, international / national import and transport, streamlining the flow of material and information. You are responsible for all materials from construction materials and electrical products to food and medical supplies. Movement can be by truck, boat, plane, helicopter, motorcycle or donkey. Your challenge is to coordinating and never loose control; our activities must never be hindered by loss of material.
MSF logistician field workers require good communication skills, the ability to work independently and great flexibility. You will roll up your sleeves one day to release a flight, and the next day you'll dress up to handle import issues at the ministry.
