Health Centre Storekeeper in the Gambia
Come and join our medical team in Sibanor's Health Centre, to keep our stock in order, log the delivery of drugs and appliances, and record what is prescribed and distributed on the wards and in outpatients.
Liaise with the pharmacy regarding all movement of drugs. Keep stocked our clinical rooms and help ward staff with updating stock there, monitoring expiry dates and do quarterly stock taking. Help the administration team and doctors to draw up orders.
The clinic is owned and run by the national church, so you would work under Gambian leadership with a mainly local team.
Take opportunities to get involved with local church, youth club and village outreach in your free time. Share about your faith as opportunities arise, eg. at our vocational skills centre, alongside the local church at the clinic and in the community.

You are a reliable and organised individual, who enjoys monotonous work alone most of the time. You have good maths and basic computer skills. No pharmacy training or previous knowledge of drugs is required.
This role can be undertaken successfully by a school leaver or even a retiree. Single or married accommodation is available.

What's it like to be a medical missionary?
"Three mornings a week I work at a local hospital. Together with a local nurse we encourage women with newborn babies to breastfeed their infant. We have only a few minutes with each mother yet it is a great opportunity to share God’s love with these young women at a very special, precious and at the same time vulnerable moment of their lives." (a midwife)
"I have loved my time at Sibanor with WEC. I have had the opportunity to learn new skills, develop in confidence as a doctor, and grow in my Christian faith. It has been a huge privilege to be welcomed by the Gambian people and to serve alongside the amazing missionary team here." (Dr Will)
Dr Helen Roseveare, who developed hospitals in the Congo, and overcame incredible challenges, said 'Jesus is worth it'.
