About the role:

The Procurement and Logistics Advisor provides strategic and operational logistics support to multiple country programmes across allocated portfolios, while acting as enabler for MAG’s Procurement and Logistics function transformation initiative.

About you:

The ideal candidate will possess expertise in overseeing large-scale operations in challenging environments, both in field and head office settings across multiple countries. Essential skills include exceptional team leadership, the ability to optimize resources and logistics systems, and a proven track record in organizational change management. Strong communication, negotiation, and analytical capabilities are vital, alongside a talent for fostering inter-departmental collaboration and remote work coordination.

*We are currently recruiting for a Global Procurement and Logistics Advisor. This is a permanent position which has been classified as ‘roving’. This means that you will be expected to be visiting MAG’s programmes for 60% of your working time or more. When not travelling or in a MAG programme, you will be based at home.

MAG will consider applications from candidates who are based in any country, however the final decision on whether employment in a specific country location can be supported will be based on a compliance and budget check, and be reviewed by MAG’s senior management.  Please note that the terms and conditions of employment may be set according to location, to ensure legal compliance, and therefore it is not possible to include full details here. The details provided in the candidate information pack are relevant to UK-based applicants. 

Where a candidate is based on a location where MAG is not registered as an employer, employment may be through an Employer of Record service.  In all cases, the employee will be subject to tax and other statutory deductions in line with the relevant law of their country of domicile.  You should therefore clearly set out the country that you would wish to be based remotely in, and MAG will provide further details on the method of employment in that country, and the relevant tax and statutory deduction implications, to candidates invited for interview.
