We continuously recruit logisticians for our projects around the world. As a logistician, you are often project-rounder; you do not need to have a specific background, the skills required are more the ability to solve problems and get things done.

As a logistician, you are normally responsible for everything concerning the practical operation of the project.

The tasks include, among other things, order and inventory management, repair and maintenance of generators and other equipment, repair and maintenance of buildings, management, contacts with local authorities and other organizations, and accounting.

Experienced logisticians usually bear some responsibility for security and reporting. To be a logistician fieldworker for MSF therefore requires good communication skills and the ability to work independently.
