    This is an exciting time at ShelterBox and as we grow, keeping our Logistics Department at peak performance is crucial to reaching our ambitious targets of sheltering more and more families each year.

    The Logistics Coordinator will be involved with the day to day running of the busy and dynamic department within the Operations Team. It is expected that the individual will have experience in logistics (humanitarian logistics experience is desirable) and will be involved in a variety of tasks and projects right across the supply chain from negotiation and procurement to international logistics and strategic prepositioning of humanitarian aid.

They should have strong attention to detail and diligence at the forefront of their skills, who is comfortable with data, working in challenging conditions and is a real team-player.

    We are looking for someone to fit into the dynamic and, oftentimes, demanding team, who can balance multiple tasks with competing deadlines.

    The individual should be confident with developing and maintaining relationships both internal with other departments and external with suppliers and partners.

    · Contribute to organisational projects;

    · Support the Critical Incident Management Team as required;

    Who are we?

    ShelterBox is committed to working towards a future where no family goes without shelter, but we have our work cut out for us. In 2018, around 88 million people were displaced by conflict and natural disasters. Some projections suggest that this figure will grow to 200 million within 10 years.

    ShelterBox is made up of people who believe in shelter as a human right – that shelter from the chaos of disaster and conflict is vital. No ifs. No buts. We’re working to change this by providing emergency shelter.

    We don’t believe that one size fits all. We work hard to understand the impact of each emergency and the need this creates within individual communities.

    We deliver aid to the four corners of the earth, reaching people in need by standing on strong shoulders.

    We are fortunate to have the help of an amazing network of global affiliates, partners like Rotary International, supporters worldwide, and dedicated volunteers.

    Our highly trained ShelterBox response teams then go the extra mile to find the people left most vulnerable after a disaster – to make sure that no one gets forgotten or left behind. Founded and based in the county of Cornwall, in only sixteen years ShelterBox has grown into a major force in international humanitarian aid.

    Do you have the skills, personality and compassion to help us write our next chapter? This is an exciting time at ShelterBox as we grow our reach and the impact of our work. We are looking for people to help us expand, develop and excel. People with big hearts and big dreams.
