PUI recruits 01 Logistics Manager in Cox’s Bazar
Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians’ victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help themrecover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads in average 200 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 7 million people in 21 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.
Humanitarian situation and needs:
Bangladesh has been the second theatre of the Rohingya crisis for more than 30 years. The Muslim minority has faced decades of repression and discrimination in its home country Myanmar/Burma, precisely in the north of Rakhine State, resulting in many of its members seeking refuge in neighbouring Bangladesh, in the southern region of Cox’s Bazar. Since the events of the 25th of August 2017, over 700,000 Rohingya crossed the border from Myanmar to Bangladesh, making it the world’s fastest developing refugee emergency. As of mid-October, there were more than one million cumulative refugees in the country, as 300,000 Rohingya were already in Bangladesh following previous waves of displacement. The sudden surge in the number of Rohingya arrivals has stretched the capacities of humanitarian organizations/agencies operating in Bangladesh. These new arrivals are being hosted in camps for registered refugees, but also overcrowded makeshift settlements, including schools, community centres, religious buildings, and with local families. New clusters of settlements have also been set up and continue to expand.
The Rohingya crisis has created immediate needs for cross-sectorial assistance. Concerns for the newly displaced persons include lack of access to food security and nutrition, widespread need for adequate WASH facilities, shelter, health, psychosocial support, gender and protection and restoration of family links.
Our actions in the Field:
Based on the strategy established during the exploratory mission in October, PUI has been implementing Site Management activities in two areas of the main refugee site since the end of 2017. These operations have been developed in Camp 17 (under UNHCR funding) and Camp 20 (under IOM funding) relying on a partnership with Handicap International due to administrative constraints in Bangladesh. Since PUI obtained its registration in May 2018, a new strategy has been developed and PUI is now operating independently with a primary focus on Site Management, WASH, and Health activities with Protection mainstreamed across them all. The mission will now gradually expand in a responsible and sustainable manner in order to implement high quality, priority programming.
As part of our actions in Bangladesh, we are looking for a Logistics Manager.
Under the direct supervision of the Field Coordinator, the Logistics Manager is responsible for managing the Cox’s Bazar logistics department. With the technical support of the Logistics Coordinator, the Logistics Manager will support day to day logistics in order to support the implementation of the programme activities in a timely manner in compliance with PUI procedures and donors’ guidelines.
