UK-Med is a humanitarian NGO that has been responding to disasters for over thirty years.  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.  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 Logistics Manager who will provide leadership across UK EMT partners in ensuring effective logistics arrangements for UK EMT deployment of health facilities including the Type 2 field hospital.  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.
