Are you a qualified Pharmacist with an interest in working to support emergency humanitarian response?

UK-Med provides emergency healthcare support in times of crisis and humanitarian emergencies.  We work with other agencies to coordinate the UK Emergency Medical Team (UKEMT) – a national programme deploying healthcare services to sudden onset disasters on behalf of the UK Government – as well as deploying independently or in collaboration with other humanitarian NGOs.  We will soon be taking on responsibility for planning and maintaining pharmaceutical stores for the UKEMT and maintaining the pharmaceutical supply chain during a deployment.

We are seeking an experienced Pharmacist to join our team in Manchester.  You will be an established professional (with at least 5 years’ experience) and be excited by the opportunity to contribute to emergency humanitarian response.  You will be able to move quickly and effectively between management of supply chain, stock and warehousing to providing expert advice to clinical and logistical colleagues.

We offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits along with a friendly working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference through humanitarian work.
