    From human resources and finance through to management of communications equipment, vehicle maintenance and sometimes even water and sanitation, our all-round logisticians are often found on smaller MSF projects in which a limited team is required.

    All-round logisticians, by nature of the position, come from a variety of backgrounds, but they all have one thing in common - flexibility.

    In a high security context where only a team of four can be sent, an all-round logistician will usually be part of the team. In a small project which is winding down and being handed over to a local authority, it is an all-round logistician who will manage all non-medical aspects of the work.

    • Setting up airplane runways, bunkers and managing expat accommodation
    • Ordering food and supplies for both the expat compound and the health facilities
    • Managing security on exploration missions
    • Siting and constructing hospital buildings
    • Managing hospital waste
    • HR, Finance and performance management for national staff
    • Supervising hygiene promotion
    • Assisting the PC with budget management
    • As well as any other non-medical tasks needing to be done


    Requirements:
    • Significant experience in at least some of the following: logistics, HR, construction, sanitation and finance
    • Experience in preventative maintenance of equipment including vehicles, generators and other equipment used in our energy set-ups, biomedical equipment, and communication equipment (e.g. HF, VHF, Sat-phones, V-SAT, Mobile phones)
    • Experience in supervising and training staff involved in technical installation and minor repair works of generators, cabling, chargers/inverters as well as vehicle management
    • Experience in management of contracts and daily labourers
    • Skills in management of IT equipment including provision of internet services
    • Experience in building design including planning of financial and human resources
    • Awareness of water and sanitation issues
    • A good command of English and French is mandatory
