The Market Access Communications team is a group of medical writing experts who develop global value dossiers, AMCP dossiers for US payers, Health Technology Assessment submissions for various global markets, value stories, and related market access deliverables for clients in the biopharmaceutical industry. In this role you will be working closely with the head of the unit and the Practice Lead, the focus being excellence in project delivery, combined with staff training and development. A significant contribution to business development activities is also expected. The role also includes contributing to the overall growth and strategic direction of the unit, building company-wide relationships with other senior Evidera staff, and responsibility for key client relationship management and thought leadership.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Hands-on leadership of projects allocated according to availability, client familiarity or history, and disease area knowledge, with overall responsibility for successful project delivery (quality, timeliness, client satisfaction, and financial performance)
Originate content as required, particularly for those tasks requiring senior input, e.g. value story, market access strategy, payer concerns.
Implement improvements in processes, particularly as they relate to maintaining scientific standards in our deliverables
Identify training and development needs for the Market Access Communications team and help to develop and deliver training to address knowledge gaps

Build and maintain new and existing client relationships and write proposals to ensure sufficient sales to meet the group’s performance targets.
Identify opportunities for selling across Evidera practices – either collaborative projects involving dossiers and other offerings, or stand-alone projects for any practice.
