Location: UK-Med Office, Manchester, UK

We are seeking a Medical Doctor, with expertise in emergency and disaster medicine, to provide expert technical input and leadership across our humanitarian health programming

UK-Med is an NGO providing emergency health support in times of crisis and humanitarian emergencies. We provide clinical support, as well as training and capacity building for health professionals around the world, with particular focus on countries vulnerable to natural disasters, outbreaks or with weakened health systems due to complex emergencies. As a key partner of the UK Emergency Medical Team (UK EMT), we work closely with FCDO and the WHO, but we are also growing our own programmes. Our work has never been more vital, with disease outbreaks and disasters becoming more frequent, complex and severe.

Following a period of significant growth we are seeking a medical doctor to join our team in this pivotal role. Our portfolio of emergency health programmes continues to grow at pace, with current or recent projects in countries including Bangladesh, Chad, Yemen, Myanmar and Lebanon. Projects include outbreak response, health worker capacity building, trauma and surgical care and health systems strengthening.

The successful candidate will have significant experience in the area of emergency and disaster medicine and humanitarian response, ideally including migration and conflict contexts. You will be able to apply your expertise to developing strategy, designing health responses and capacity building programmes as well as contributing to grant proposals. You will be willing and able to deploy overseas with our responses, providing leadership to health teams and liaising closely with Ministries of Health, WHO and other partners.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits along with a friendly working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference through humanitarian work. UK-Med is a growing and developing organisation with a committed team of staff, volunteers and members.
