Procurement and Supply chain Management Expert


Short-term experts to assess and monitor Procurement and Supply chain Management (PSM) systems of health products.

ResultsinHealth is looking for interested experts who are qualified to assess systems to procure and manage those health commodities, supplies, and equipment, and who can produce high quality advice to the Global Fund. PSM experts who live in, or close to, the Global Fund `high impact´ countries (in particular in the African and Asian regions) are strongly encouraged to apply.

Responsibilities

Assessments relate to the full cycle of product selection, quantification of needs, procurement, quality assurance, storage, distribution, inventory management, and rational use of commodities. Experts will assess and monitor PSM systems, with the aim of ensuring best practice and risk minimization for the Global Fund. 

Activities may involve onsite assessment visits, as well as desk reviews of PSM related planning and monitoring documentation. Requests come often at short notice, and responses must be swift. Onsite work typically requires 1-2 weeks visits, and reporting is generally required shortly thereafter.

Qualifications

Successful candidates have a university degree in pharmacy, health or a related area, and several years of experience in international procurement and supply chain management.

Hands-on experience is a non-negotiable requirement. Training in pharmaceutical procurement, international tendering, pharmaceutical supply chain management and/or project management are desirable, as is experience in the management and implementation of HIV/AIDS, Malaria and/or Tuberculosis control programmes in developing countries.

Requirements

ResultsinHealth experts have a strong commitment to health and development, and a special interest in issues related to public health. They have an open mindset, flexible attitudes, and an entrepreneurial approach. Strong interpersonal skills are indispensable, as are self-management skills and an ability to deliver in a timely fashion. They express themselves clearly and concisely, especially in written form.

Languages

Excellent verbal and written knowledge of English is a key requirement. All reports will have to be written in the English language. Additional language skills (especially French, Spanish, and Portuguese) are considered an asset.

ResultsinHealth support

ResultsinHealth works with a system of peer-review and discussion within the wider ResultsinHealth team. Senior PSM experts coach new colleagues to strengthen their skills and experience. Deliverables are also reviewed to ensure consistency with internationally accepted good practice, regulations and requirements. Given the strong academic approach of the ResultsinHealth team, significant emphasis is placed on the promotion of objectively verifiable data and reference sources. All services are coordinated by ResultsinHealth’s central coordination team in Leiderdorp, The Netherlands.

Applications should be sent through our website. Please include your Curriculum Vitae and any information that could be relevant for the assessment of your application.
