Our supply logisticians make sure our projects are equipped with everything that's needed to deal with an emergency.

From collecting supplies off an MSF plane on a makeshift runway, to working with the medical team to forecast medical supplies months in advance, the work of a supply logistician is far reaching and vital to the whole team.

As a logistician with MSF, you will be integral to the smooth functioning of our missions, ensuring the efficient implementation of technical and logistical strategies alongside the Head of Mission and Cell Logistic Advisor.
