COVANCE is a leading global drug development services company and we provide support to the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology industries.

You can make a difference by helping to deliver life-saving and life-enhancing medicines to people around the world. Our commitment to this mission has resulted in Covance’s impressive history of company stability and growth. We’ve achieved these results by fostering a work environment that encourages, develops and leverages our team’s capabilities.

This is your chance to become part of a team that helps to bring miracle of medicine to market sooner.

Due to continued and significant growth within our global Covance Market Access (CMA) practice, we have an outstanding opportunity for an additional Senior Manager PSG. Within CMA we not only provide HEOR expertise on client specific studies, but also build economic models, provide reimbursement consulting, and secondary database analyses across multiple therapeutic areas and markets. This highly autonomous position will manage HEOR projects primarily for late phase candidates and/or post marketed products, focusing on economic end points. Some of the work will be non-study specific, as well as working with colleagues across Covance on client specific studies.

About the job
• Working with core Sales and Marketing and other CMA Services colleagues to prepare and present HEOR capability presentations to clients
• Working with clients to define how the assignment will be performed and determine deliverables that will be presented to clients
• Preparing and reviewing proposals for consulting services
• Identifying sources and managing/directing the day to day collection of data through primary and secondary research, ensuring that appropriate quantitative and qualitative analytical techniques are performed allowing inferences and conclusions to be drawn.
• Reviewing and editing draft summaries prepared by project team(s)
• Using information and data collected to prepare specific findings and recommendations that meet client requirements
• Reviewing and revising written memos, correspondence, and reports; conducting phone and in-person presentations to clients to describe data sources; and explaining patterns found in the data and indicating how the findings and recommendations were developed
• Ensuring data is collected according to Covance’s SOPs and within agreed timelines and budgets, including coordinating the required input from clients (and other Covance departments and external advisors), identifying, for example, any changes in project scope and associated change orders
• Process improvement participation
• Initiating repeat business
• Supporting senior management in implementing practice policies and mentoring less experienced consulting staff
• Participating in strategic discussions and providing leadership (depending on level of expertise) across the CMA group
• There would be some travel associated with this position, primarily to meet with clients, e.g. bid defence metings. Some flexibility around weekend and evening working may be required to hit project schedules
About you
• A graduate degree is preferred in, for example, public health, public policy, health services research, health economics, management, statistics, or clinical science, or equivalent experience
• Health economic analysis experience, particularly as it relates to designing and implementing prospective studies
• You should have a good understanding of Economic Modelling and Patiented Reported Outcomes
• Excellent communication, problem solving, and organization skills
• Understanding the fundamental principles of statistics, analysis, and review
• Able to work independently in a fast-paced matrix environment, multi-tasking as required, often to meet demanding deadlines
