This opportunity will manage pipeline and marketed products primarily for Lung and Skin cancers, with a view to leading medical affairs launch strategy for regular new to market medicines between 2021-2027. You will work closely with the Therapy Area Medical Director and other cross-functional departmental heads and their teams (Commercial, Regulatory, Market Access) in order to successfully drive launch plans, and also guide workflow of colleagues in Scientific Affairs and field-based Medical Affairs.

With flexibility from our client this could be someone's first line management role. For the right candidate and dependant on experience this position can build in management of a small solid tumour focused medical team either from day one in the job or at some point in the first 12 months whilst you get settled.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Leadership of local Medical Affairs plans for assigned products, including execution and strategic decision-making for launch products year-on-year
  • Lead and maintain important KOL and HCP relationships in solid tumour Oncology, with key individuals and centres across the UK
  • Act as an ABPI Final Medical Signatory and ensure compliance across your product line, in accordance with the highest company ethical standards as well as external codes of practice (e.g. ABPI)
  • Support other functions with high levels of medical and scientific guidance on all assigned products, including the likes of Patient Engagement Programmes and HTA submissions
  • Lead the implementation of therapy aligned Evidence Generation Programmes to meet local requirements of cross-functional teams

Candidate Profile:

  • Post-qualification experience in clinical medicine or clinical pharmacy
  • Significant experience in UK Medical Affairs in pharma, most likely as a Medical Advisor or Senior Medical Advisor
  • ABPI Final Medical Signatory status is required
  • Oncology experience in pharmaceutical medicine is required, although this does not have to be your expertise or necessarily the only therapy area you've ever focused on
  • Ability to make important decisions with minimal support - decisive and proactive mindset
  • Someone passionate about Oncology and bringing life-changing cancer treatments to patients
  • Big pharma experience is not essential, though someone needs to know how to work successfully in a high-profile role and team where every day can be 100mph
