Supply manager

MSF Supply Chain managers ensure that the medicines and other support items arrive in the right destination on time. The process involves international supply centers, many local suppliers, different internal departments to deal with, and diverse transportation methods (road, planes, boats, helicopters…).

As a Supply manager you will be the focal point for day to day operation subjects for internal and external stakeholders. You will manage orders to ensure accurate and timely delivery to the projects. You will lead a team and will play the role of defining capabilities and ensuring they are in place. At the end, you participate in all the steps of the supply chain: planning and forecasting, local and international purchasing, transportation and customs clearance, warehouse and inventory management, cold chain storage and distribution, all of this in complex contexts. Therefore, good planning, negotiation and organization skills, are key for a Supply professional in MSF.

Ideal candidates hold a diploma in technical or business domain, preferably in Logistics/Supply management.

 

Essential requirements:

  • Diploma in relevant area.
