Humanitarian Logistics and Procurement Roster

The Danish Refugee Council (DRC), in collaboration with the UN, is building a new stand-by roster for humanitarian experts in logistics and procurement. The purpose of the roster is:

Due to the increasing number, complexity and length of emergencies around the world, the requirements for short-term logistics expertise are increasing in parallel and demanding a higher number of qualified experts in humanitarian logistics. The roster aims at meeting these demands by providing experts suitable for deployment to UN organizations in emergencies. 

Becoming a Member

All interested candidates, with experience within the logistics and procurement field, are welcome to apply for membership of the roster. After the application deadline, a thorough screening of all applications will be carried out jointly by DRC and selected UN organizations. Following this, interviews will be conducted and the shortlisted candidates and references will be contacted. The final selection of members for the roster will be made by DRC, in collaboration with the UN. 
Applications are only accepted during the set recruitment period and only applications submitted through the DRC online application system are considered. The Humanitarian Logistics and Procurement Roster is currently closed for appliactions. 
Membership Obligations and Conditions
The members deployed to the UN as logistics or procurement experts will work on DRC contracts. The membership obligations, conditions and benefits resemble those of the Stand-by Member Roster. The same staff care policy applies, and the conditions and obligations are as follows:
  1. The member has an obligation to always inform the DRC Stand-by Roster of changes in contact details and availability. Hence, any longer periods of unavailability must be shared with the DRC Stand-by Roster, and;
  2. Accepting membership of the Humanitarian Logistics and Procurement Roster, allows the DRC Stand-by Roster to forward a P11 or CV to United Nations organizations and DRC programs at any time in relation to relevant positions without prior confirmation.

Membership of and deployment through the Humanitarian Logistics and Procurement Roster offers extensive opportunities to make a difference to the lives of people in need. It holds both personal and professional challenges as well as a myriad of unique experiences.
