Whether it is building a 150 beds-hospital with prefabricated solutions, vaccinating 100,000 people in just a few weeks or responding to an emergency in just a few days, logistics and supply are essential to MSF’s operations. However, not enough supply chain professionals know MSF is looking for them.
To this end Doctors Without Borders, also known as MSF, its French acronym, is organizing a recruitment information session for supply chain professionals in Neder-over-Heembeek on Thursday 4 April from 5:30 to 8:30pm. The session is held in English and contains a tour of the warehouse.
“In addition to medical profiles, we also need people from other fields (such as logisticians, experts in supply chain, procurement, warehouse and pharmacy management),” says Valeria Orlandi, Head of the field recruitment department. “We are in need of more professionals since our work in the field is becoming more specialized and the context more complex. We welcome everyone to come to an information session about working in the field to understand how we work, what the recruitment criteria are and what life in the field is like.”
