UK-Med is a frontline medical aid charity. Born of the NHS, we’ve been working for over 30 years towards a world where everyone has the healthcare they need when crises or disasters hit.

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.  As a WHO verified emergency medical team, we deploy both as the British government’s implementing partner for the UK EMT and independently as UK Med.  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 Warehouse Manager who will lead on managing our current two warehouses to ensure that kit is held in readiness to respond to the emergencies we face and they will play a key role in ensuring the kit is despatched as quickly as possible when needed.

Our ideal candidate will plan and organize warehouse layout and storage areas for optimal space utilization. Establish processes for receiving, inspecting, and storing incoming goods. Develop efficient picking, packing, and shipping procedures to ensure timely delivery of supplies to project sites.

The Warehouse Manager will also have a key responsibility over the health and safety of the two sites and ensuring we are complaint with current regulations as well as supporting the in-house pharmacist on the MHRA compliance measures.

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.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits along with a friendly working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference through an influential role in our humanitarian programming.
