Director - Global Oncology Publications

Pharma-Partners is working exclusively with a large pharmaceutical business to recruit an important management role within the Global publications function. This organisation has an established presence in multiple therapy areas, with Oncology now becoming its fastest growing and most heavily invested product portfolio.

Reporting to the Global Head of Publications, you will lead all Global publications efforts specifically for Oncology products currently in development and advancing to pre-launch. This will be achieved by strategic leadership and line management of the Global Oncology publications team, based across two locations, which delivers high-quality publications and scientific materials to the external environment. Your role will combine aspects of team leadership, project management, and best practice governance. Key responsibilities include:

  • Line management and leadership of the Oncology publications team, as they work directly with R&D stakeholders to execute an ethical framework for medical governance activities, essential to delivering the publications plans created by you and the leadership team
  • Delivery and strategic execution of publication plans across all Oncology products in clinical development
  • Operational management and direction of outsourced publications resources i.e. third party vendors and consultants
  • Provide on-going publication medical governance support on scientific and medical materials used by stakeholders across the organisation
  • Maintain expertise and understanding of publications ethics and data disclosure, working closely with external and internal parties to ensure best practice and the following of good publication practice standards both Globally and locally

Candidate requirements:

  • Life Science qualification - ideally to PhD level
  • Direct and significant experience in medical/scientific publications in a leading pharma company (in-house pharma experience is a must)
  • Line management experience is a must
  • Significant experience in Oncology is required, however there is flexibility and this does not need to be the only therapy area focus someone has had in their career
  • An expert in driving medical governance and ethical best practice in the delivery of publication plans
  • Proven experience of managing and delivering highly visible Global publications projects
  • Ability to work proactively with cross-functional teams across different locations and regions
