International Medical Corps is a global, humanitarian, non-profit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through health care training and relief and development programs. Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, International Medical Corps is a private, voluntary, non-political, non-sectarian organization. Its mission is to improve the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in underserved communities worldwide. By offering training and health care to local populations and medical assistance to people at highest risk, and with the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergency situations, International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated health care systems and helps bring them back to self-reliance.
Selected Emergency Response Unit (ERU) members are always on standby to deploy to a crisis within 72 hours, whether they are launching into new areas or lending support to International Medical Corps teams already on the ground. International Medical Corps maintains a roster of volunteers, staff and available specialists who have been interviewed and have completed pre-deployment paperwork, orientation and training. The roster is updated on regular basis as new responders are identified and members update their areas of expertise and other relevant information.
The Logistics Coordinator is part of the Emergency Response Team SMT and represents the logistics team internally and externally. Sets internal support services coordination mechanisms and is accountable for overall support functions outputs (including Logistics, Wash, Finance and HR) related to EMT Type 1 deployment and implementation. Provides technical support and planning support to EMT Type 1 initiatives to increase the in-country support services capacity.
This requires a highly motivated and detail solution-oriented individual who will be able to resolve operational critical challenges as they arise with a strong experience of International Medical Corps systems and procedures.
The Logistics Coordinator contributes to ensuring that International Medical Corps commitment to improving quality and accountability in humanitarian work is upheld, through reference to the Sphere Charter, IMC Minimum Standards and the NGO Code of Conduct.
