Are you an experienced WASH professional looking for a diverse and exciting role?
UK-Med provides emergency healthcare support in times of crisis and humanitarian emergencies. Since we formed as a charity in 1995, we have responded in a wide variety of humanitarian emergency settings. We work with other agencies to coordinate the UK Emergency Medical Team (UK EMT) – a national programme deploying healthcare services to sudden onset disasters on behalf of the UK Government and working to WHO standards – as well as deploying independently or in collaboration with other humanitarian NGOs. As we strengthen our response capabilities, we are recruiting a WASH Manager to provide technical expertise and leadership.
As WASH Manager, you will ensure that WASH is incorporated across all stages of our health programming. You will have a proven track record in humanitarian WASH/IPC including implementing community-based WASH programmes, hydrology, water quality and testing. Experience of WASH/IPC support during an outbreak would be an advantage.
We offer a competitive salary and benefits along with a friendly working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference through humanitarian work.
