Our supply logisticians make sure our projects are equipped with everything that's needed to deal with an emergency. As a supply manager, you will analyse in-country contexts in order to design, plan and set up a relevant supply chain, build the capacity of local staff and work closely with all departments to ensure accurate forecasting and emergency preparedness.


MSF principles

All of its members agree to honour the following principles:

Médecins Sans Frontières provides assistance to populations in distress, to victims of natural or man-made disasters and to victims of armed conflict. They do so irrespective of race, religion, creed or political convictions.

Médecins Sans Frontières observes neutrality and impartiality in the name of universal medical ethics and the right to humanitarian assistance and claims full and unhindered freedom in the exercise of its functions.

Members undertake to respect their professional code of ethics and maintain complete independence from all political, economic or religious powers.

As volunteers, members understand the risks and dangers of the missions they carry out and make no claim for themselves or their assigns for any form of compensation other than that which the association might be able to afford them.

Life in the field

Conditions of employment

MSF Sweden is recruiting several Supply profiles for the pool to be available for projects in the field. During the recruitment process applicants are validated for the position as Supply Manager for the field projects. Members of the pool are then matched for a specific mission that corresponds with their previous professional experiences. Applicants therefore need to be prepared to go to any type of context and motivated to go for several missions with MSF.

You are employed in Sweden for the entire duration of the mission. Those of you on your first mission receive a salary of 13,059 SEK or 1,476 € depending on if you live in Sweden or Finland. Compensation increases thereafter with experience and responsibility.

The salary is intended to cover living expenses in Sweden or in Finland. MSF pays for travel, accommodations, and per diem to cover meals etc. We also provide excellent insurance coverage, medical examinations and any necessary vaccinations.

An assignment usually lasts for 6-12 months. We therefore require you to be available for that length of time. Depending on your project and your role, assignments may be longer or shorter. Fieldworkers get a week off every three months.

The position as Supply Manager

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.

Your challenge is to coordinate and never lose control; our activities must never be hindered by loss of material.
