  • Experience in medical affairs in pharmaceutical medicine is essential
  • Strategic experience delivering medical plans
  • Product launch experience
  • Direct experience engaging with KOLs/HCPs for a product or therapy area, as well as supporting field-based colleagues and scientific affairs colleagues in a matrix structure
  • Experience of working with the ABPI Code of Practice
  • Experience working collaboratively with global counterparts is preferred, though this could be your first 'above country' role if you've worked in a UK/Ire affiliate so far
  • A proactive communicator who is comfortable managing high profile internal relationships with commercial colleagues, and other departmental leaders
