MSF Operational Centre Brussels is looking for a:
SUPPLY CHAIN COORDINATOR, MSF OCB – DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO
DRC is one of the biggest missions in MSF with a yearly budget above €30 million.
Access to healthcare is a big challenge for the population and the mission supports various projects all over the country.
The projects MSF OCB runs in DRC address the acute problems arising from conflicts and crises, but also the gaps and obstacles to the management of health problems such as HIV / AIDS, sleeping sickness, sexual violence, malnutrition , malaria and the various endemic epidemics that regularly affect the country. Among them: cholera, measles, typhoid fever, plague or haemorrhagic fevers like Ebola.
In most projects close collaboration exists with the MoH and all projects are focusing on healthcare for women and children. Are of special concern women in rural areas who die from preventable complications during pregnancy and delivery. Neonatal care is unavailable in many areas. MSF continues to support health authorities in responding to urgent needs.
The international supplies are entering via both an eastern and a western port, there is no central supply stock, and instead all projects are responsible for their own stock in this decentralized set-up in need of a strong manager.
The Supply Chain Coordinator is responsible of defining and guaranteeing the implementation of an effective and efficient mission supply chain and defining country standards and strategies according to MSF protocols, standards and policies in order to enable the development of the mission and optimize the impact of the medical projects.
The main objective is to develop the supply chain in the country together with the other departments, in accordance to the existing supply strategy.
A big part of the role is to manage the big supply chain department with more than 50 national staff and 12 expats, located all over the country.
