This is an exciting opportunity to join a leading global drug development services company which provides support to the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical devices industries.

At Covance Market Access Consulting we partner with our clients - pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device companies, including large global corporations and small regional firms - to help them achieve optimal market access for their products, thereby maximising commercial success.

Our consultants have solid scientific credentials and provide expertise in fields such as market assessment and stakeholder research, health economic modelling and outcome research studies, development of launch strategies, and value communication.

We develop strategies based on research and analysis which provide our clients with in-depth understanding of the marketplace, the opinions of payers and other decision-makers, and the anticipated market access challenges they may face. This helps our clients plan for launch and beyond.

We generate evidence to demonstrate the comparative value of our clients' products. We distil the value of the product into easy-to-use suites of communication materials and tools - based on clear and consistent arguments - which can be tailored for maximum impact with different audiences.

We are looking for exceptional candidates for a Senior Associate, to join the value communication team within our market access consulting group. The successful candidate will be involved in developing materials on a wide range of projects aimed at furthering our clients' strategic goals, bringing together clinical, humanistic and economic data to demonstrate the value of products.
