Readvertisement - Supply & Logistics Manager - P4

Niger, Niamey, Niamey - UNICEF

UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.   Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.   And we never give up.   For every child, passion.   Niger is a landlocked Sahelian country of 21.5 million people, most of whom live in rural areas (84%). The population is young, with 58% of Nigeriens being under 18, and nearly half of the population is poor, despite reductions in the poverty rate over the past decade. The country, which ranked last on the 2017 Human Development Index, sees its development constrained by several factors: high population growth, climatic conditions that hinder rural development, vulnerability due to the absence of economic diversification, gender equality issues, low levels of literacy and education, and the size and landlocked nature of the country, which obstruct the provision of essential goods and services to the population. In addition, Niger is confronted to recurrent crises, including malnutrition, epidemics and population displacement.   UNICEF supports the Government of Niger's efforts to improve the situation of women and children, focusing on the following seven sectors through its 2019-2021 programme of cooperation: health, nutrition, water, hygiene and sanitation, education, child protection, and social inclusion, and adolescent and social norms. The vision for the new country programme is to support the Government towards ensuring that all children, especially the most vulnerable, enjoy their rights; adolescents and youth are empowered; communities and systems are strengthened and resilient; and humanitarian assistance and development address the structural causes of fragility and vulnerability.   How can you make a difference?   Join our dynamic team in UNICEF Niger to work with and lead the Supply and Logistics Unit. The Supply and Logistics Manager reports to the Deputy Representative Operations and is responsible for managing the supply chains of the country office.

Burkina Faso, Centre, Ouagadougou - world food programme

WFP seeks candidates of the highest integrity and professionalism who share our humanitarian principles.  Selection of staff is made on a competitive basis, and we are committed to promoting diversity and gender balance.   ABOUT WFP   The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide.  The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes.  Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.   ORGANIZATIONAL CONTEXT   These jobs are found in Headquarters (HQ), Regional Bureaux (RBs) or large Country Offices (COs) and report to the Division/Regional/Country Director or the designate. Job holders at this grade level are highly trained and experienced experts who are likely to manage substantive supply chain teams, lead on more specialist or far reaching initiatives or more complex WFP supply chain operations (i.e. complex supply chain operations are usually characterised by highly volatile security situations, complex procurement/service provision operations, a combination of multiple corridors, modes of delivery and/or multiple countries, and/or challenging access to beneficiaries due to conflict or lack of infrastructure).   Job holders typically lead large and diverse teams to excel in individual specializations (i.e. Logistics operations, Procurement, Logistics Clusters, etc.) ensuring overall effective coordination and synergy. Staff at this level demonstrate substantive capacity for advanced research and innovation, with capacity to effectively communicate complex plans, goals and achieve integrated outputs. Job holders are required to partner extensively with internal and external stakeholders on substantial supply chain matters.   BURKINA FASO COUNTRY CONTEXT Burkina Faso is a semi-arid, landlocked country in the Sahel region; its population is estimated at approximately 20.9 million. Conflict affects most of the regions in Burkina Faso, especially in the east, north and northwest of the country, close to the borders with Mali and Niger. The continued deterioration of security across the country since 2018 has resulted in a massive population displacement. As of September 2020, over one million people were officially displaced: more than a hundredfold increase since 2018. The Cadre Harmonisé last year (2020) reported that 19 percent of households in the country were food insecure, with the COVID-19 pandemic adding an additional layer of vulnerability to an already fragile situation. According to the 2021 Humanitarian Response Plan, Burkina Faso's multifaceted humanitarian crisis impacts nearly 3.5 million people with 2.9 million in critical need, 51 percent of whom are women and 46 percent children. Supply chain is essential; for the country operation, we procure internationally and locally, and we store, transport, and provide these services to humanitarian community and government. Supply chain is managing two types of logistics service provision with (1) sister UN agencies and (2) capacity strengthening assistance support to government/SONAGESS in increasing their food storage capacity and the digitalization of its paper-based stock management system.
