Procurement and Supply Chain Lead

Are you an experienced humanitarian supply chain and procurement specialist looking to make a huge impact on surge health responses?

UK-Med provides emergency healthcare support in times of crisis and humanitarian emergencies.  Since we formed as a charity in 1995, we have responded in a wide variety of humanitarian emergency settings.  We work with other agencies to coordinate the UK Emergency Medical Team (UK EMT) – a national programme deploying healthcare services to sudden onset disasters on behalf of the UK Government and working to WHO standards – as well as deploying independently or in collaboration with other humanitarian NGOs.  As we strengthen our response capabilities, we are recruiting a Procurement & Supply Chain Lead to focus on procurement, stock control and supply chain of essential equipment, medical devices and pharmacy, and the dispatch / transport arrangements to make sure it is available for our humanitarian responses.

As Procurement & Supply Chain Lead you will develop a robust supply chain system delivering procurement and movement capacity across our programmes. This will include order processing, procurement, storage, transport and customs compliance.  You will bring significant relevant supply chain expertise, either from a significant period working in the sector (5+ years) or a combination of a relevant degree and experience.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits along with a friendly working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference through humanitarian work.
