Required Experience and Skills
  • Fluency in English to the level of conducting research and performing interviews with clarity and full comprehension
  • At least one to two years' professional experience (including in internships or freelance assignments) in carrying out primary elicitation, ideally working as a part of a business intelligence team in the pharmaceutical and biotech domain or within a pharmaceutical consulting environment
  • The motivation and resilience to make a high volume of outbound calls daily as well as experience working successfully to deadlines
  • Proficiency in the use of Microsoft Office applications, especially PowerPoint and Excel

Desired Experience and Skills
