The HIAS emergency response roster upholds our mission to support refugees and displaced populations in times of crisis. We are seeking passionate humanitarian professionals to join our initiative to help serve and respond to humanitarian emergencies.
HIAS seeks an experienced Supply & Logistics Coordinator to join its global external surge roster. HIAS established its emergency roster to access a pool of experienced and qualified candidates with a demonstrated background in emergency response and complex humanitarian programming.
Upon emergency deployment, the Supply & Logistics Coordinator will fulfill both supply and logistics support functions. This position will be responsible for the efficient coordination and management of all supply and procurement functions and uphold utmost integrity of HIAS’s systems and processes. The Supply & Logistics Coordinator will also be responsible for the standardization of policies and practices in their deployment context. S/he will additionally serve as the operational engine for the various programs team and is expected to liaise with departments to ensure anticipation and delivery of their needs.
The Coordinator will manage the logistics functions to provide timely and effective support to Country Office programs to ensure objectives are met.
The Supply & Logistics Coordinator will report to the Operations Manager and/or Emergency Response Director on the ground; or, in situations in which there is no Emergency Response Director but there is an existing HIAS Country Office, the Supply & Logistics Coordinator will report to the HIAS Country Director (or his/her designated Manager). The Supply & Logistics Coordinator will also work closely with the HQ-based Emergency Department and may be requested to also liaise with other HIAS departments or divisions.
In order to join HIAS’ emergency roster, candidates will need to apply as instructed through the website and then will undergo a shortened selection process. All roster members will be requested to keep HIAS updated as to their interest and availability to be deployed and/or remotely support on emergency responses. If/when opportunities arise that meet a roster member’s skill set, they will be contacted and will go through an expedited selection and contracting process, including salary agreement based on the role and location of the roster surge support placement. While on the roster and not working/deployed, roster members will not receive compensation or benefits of any kind but may potentially have access to trainings.
