Job description

Our Operations Directorate provides operational coordination, grant and programme management and logistics support for our humanitarian health programming.  Following a period of significant growth, we formed new Operations and Health Directorates from the previous programmes team.  After several months under interim leadership, we are now looking for our first permanent Operations Director to develop and embed the work and systems of this team.

You will play a significant role as a senior leader of a humanitarian NGO whose work has never been more important.  Humanitarian health needs are growing.  UK-Med is an NGO providing emergency health support in times of crisis and humanitarian emergencies.  We provide clinical support, as well as training and capacity building for health professionals around the world, with particular focus on countries vulnerable to outbreaks, natural disasters or with weakened health systems due to complex emergencies. As a key partner of the UK Emergency Medical Team (UK EMT), we work closely with FCDO and the WHO, but we are also growing our own programmes.  Our work has never been more vital, with disease outbreaks and disasters becoming more frequent, complex and severe.

Our new Operations Director will be an established senior professional in humanitarian operations management with previous experience in NGO senior leadership.  You will bring both the expertise to develop our systems and processes, and the flexible, can-do attitude to ensure effective day-to-day delivery while systems are developed.  This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious, capable professional to join a rapidly growing organisation at a pivotal point in our development.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits along with a friendly working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference through humanitarian work.  UK-Med is a growing and developing organisation with a committed team of staff, volunteers and members.
