UN Jobs / NGO Job Vacancy : Bangladesh: Logistics Supply Chain Manager– Bangladesh

NGO Jobs / UN Jobs Vacancy



Organization: Handicap International - Humanity & Inclusion
Country: Bangladesh
Closing date: 15 May 2018

GENERAL PRESENTATION

Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.
HI is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside disabled and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

For further information about the association: http://www.handicap-international.org

Present in more than 55 countries, Handicap International is composed of 2 operational directions:

  • The Direction of Humanitarian Action (DAH)
  • The Direction of Development Action (DAD)

Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries in South Asia with one of the highest density of population in the world – 160 million. Bangladesh is a delta where 3 main rivers reach the sea. Most of the country is a disaster prone area in term of floods.

Emergency context and needs
A high proportion of the Undocumented Myanmar Nationals (UNM) refugees in Cox’s Bazar remain in a chronic emergency situation due to long-term challenges to find a durable solution to their status in Myanmar and Bangladesh and therefore require continuous humanitarian assistance. The new influx, with more than 600,000 arrivals from August 2018, has created even more pressure on resources and increasing humanitarian needs. The host Bangladeshi communities are also affected by the presence of a large refugee population living in the region. The two sub-districts of Ukhiya and Teknaf, where the refugees are mostly residing, are vulnerable to increased rates of poverty due to lack of public and private services, scarce job opportunities and limited natural resources, among other key causes. In addition, this coastal region is continuously dealing with the impacts of natural disasters, mostly cyclones and flooding, during which meagre assets of the local population are damaged or destroyed. The humanitarian needs resulting from the Mora’s devastating impact and the new arrivals of refugees have not been fully met yet, and the cyclone season is expected to start soon.

MISSION CONTEXT
HI has been working in Bangladesh since 1997, with a focus on creating sustainable changes in terms of ensuring rights and inclusion of people with disabilities in society.
In Cox Bazar’s district, HI has a strong knowledge and experience in chronic emergency response. Thanks to three projects implemented before the crisis, HI is providing services in rehabilitation, protection and PSS, with an inclusive mainstreaming approach to refugees and host population. HI works not only with people with disabilities and other vulnerable populations, but also with their families, their communities, and the society, in order to provide sustainability in its action.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Emergency Response
In response to the massive influx of refugees, HI also set-up an emergency intervention responding to the needs of thousands of refugees. Multi-sectorial mobile teams are currently working in the “mega camp”, providing services in rehabilitation, health, protection and PSS. Because of the extremely vulnerability of certain persons, the mobile intervention helps reaching people forgotten by static activities. HI is also providing kits (shelter, NFI, WaSH, dignity, dry food) through a dedicated team in order to have a more integrated approach and respond to the needs of new arrivals.
Through its brands ATLAS logistics, HI set-up two storages in Ukiya and Teknaf and is facilitating transport to support other actors in their intervention.
Last, being very concern by the next monsoon season, HI is currently building a strategy of disaster risk reduction in coordination with an already experimented HI team in Dhaka as well as with the other actors in the zone.
