This organisation supports anonymous recruitment. That means hiding your personal identifying information, removing bias from the hiring process.

Logistics Officer

Do you want to be part of supporting vulnerable communities across the globe to access the healthcare they need through the delivery of essential medicines and supplies? Are you highly organised, motivated by your Christian faith and have excellent system and administration skills that will help us manage our shipments of medical aid to reach those who need it?

International Health Partners (IHP) supports people in hard-to-reach, vulnerable and disaster-hit communities to get the medicines they need, by coordinating the safe and responsible donation of long-dated medical products. We work with our strong network of global healthcare, logistics and NGO partners, to source and send treatments to where they are needed most, to help prevent the needless suffering caused by a lack of access to healthcare.  Our work is needed now more than ever. The global outbreak of COVID-19 has further highlighted the urgent need for improving access to medicines and for strengthening health systems.

We are seeking a Logistics Officer who will be responsible for updating our inventory of donated medicines and arranging the shipping of those medicines around the world.  This means entering and maintaining data on systems, preparing shipping documentation and liaising with pharmaceutical companies and our overseas NGO partners who receive the medicines for disaster response and health programmes.

The Logistics Officer plays a key role in delivering IHP’s effective product donation programme delivering high-quality healthcare products to those in vulnerable and disaster-hit communities so that people don’t suffer needlessly from treatable illnesses.

We are looking for someone who is self-motivated, great at problem solving, has an excellent eye for detail, and wants to learn and contribute to a great team. We can offer you a rewarding and varied role, with lots of training and support, in our small but busy team in London.
