Remote Area Medical (RAM) is looking for a professional, organized, and creative person to commit to 12 months of service as a RAM Warehouse Coordinator AmeriCorps VISTA. During your service, you will support RAM’s warehouse and procurement staff in creating processes and plans that help RAM operate a more efficient warehouse, as well as developing procedures and training materials that help RAM better purchase and maintain its clinic and disaster response supplies and equipment. These tasks will ultimately help RAM provide more low-income individuals with access to RAM’s free mobile medical clinic services and RAM’s disaster response efforts.


You’ll be a great fit if you are committed to service and have an interest in developing a deeper understanding of how health disparities impact low-income and rural communities. This position is appropriate for anyone committed to helping RAM in its mission of preventing pain and alleviating suffering by providing free, quality care to those in need, including recent graduates of undergraduate and graduate programs, career-changing professionals, and retirees.


Requirements:

  • Excellent organizational and time management skills
  • Experience meeting goals
  • Strategic thinking, critical thinking, and creative problem solving abilities
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Commitment to excellence and self-improvement
  • A college degree
  • Ability to work well as a team member in a participatory environment, helping to create and sustain collegial relationships
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel
  • Be able to provide your own transportation
  • Be comfortable working in a warehouse environment


Other helpful expertise, interests & skills to discuss in your application if you have them:

  • Basic understanding of procurement processes or logistics


The RAM Warehouse Coordinator service position begins in early August 2018. While you will be fully integrated as a member of the RAM team, this is a volunteer position funded by the AmeriCorps VISTA program, not a conventional job posting. Benefits include a monthly living stipend (approx. $1,023/month), health insurance and, at the completion of service, an education award of $5,920.


Founded in 1985, Remote Area Medical (RAM) is a major non-profit organization that operates mobile medical clinics delivering free, high-quality, dental, vision, and medical services to underserved and uninsured individuals who do not have access to or cannot afford a doctor.
