The project pharmacist manager is the responsible to ensure best practices in managing medicines and medical equipment at project level, defining, coordinating and monitoring all pharmacy related activities in the project area.
You will manage the ordering, supply, inventory, and distribution of drugs and medical supplies to clinics and hospitals supported by MSF—in collaboration with both the logistics and medical teams. Pharmacists work closely with international and locally hired members of the team to ensure good pharmaceutical practices and compliance with national regulations, and may also liaise with government officials on supply chain issues.
As a pharmacist with MSF you may be asked to evaluate the availability and quality of drugs being considered for local purchase or to maintain or improve upon certain tools or systems, such as stock cards, computerized data, or application software. You might also find yourself confronted with the task of storing medicines in challenging, under-resourced locations. While responsibilities vary by assignment, in every project you can expect to supervise large teams of locally hired staff.

What we offer:
