The New Health is a complex and challenging landscape. Quintiles has thrived by constantly reinventing itself, sometimes even reinventing the industry. Our consulting team draws on that experience and decades of analysis to help customers develop products, bring them to market successfully, maneuver through regulatory minefields and even streamline their internal processes. It requires thinking across traditional boundaries in the unique space where insight and execution meet. It requires people who are creative, practical and willing to challenge conventional approaches.
The Market Intelligence Practice within Quintiles Consulting is a team of individuals with a blend of industry, operational, clinical, and life science expertise focused on biopharmaceutical market research. The practice uniquely benefits from the unparalleled resources of a larger organization, and the agility and fresh-minded thinking of a smaller independent firm. The team provides industry leading business insights backed by data-driven analytics to inform "high-stakes" strategic decisions across all stages of drug development and commercialization.
The practice is seeking motivated and inspired thinkers to share the goal of informing biopharmaceutical business decisions and driving success in a constantly evolving and competitive global market. Exceptional team members have come from an array of backgrounds and have had academic, industry, consulting, or operations experience. All share a passion for collaboration, innovation, and analytical thinking, making for a stimulating and fun workplace. Colleagues within the practice play a fundamental role in shaping a fast-growing evidence-based consultancy, and are presented with many opportunities to further develop their careers.
