Clinical Development Director to work in Rare Diseases

Your new company

The company I am recruiting for are a mid-sized pharmaceutical company that work within rare diseases. They are looking for someone to work with them on a really exciting Oncology pipeline. They have a number of products at Phase III as well as earlier in the development process. The words of the management team are that you have the resources of a large pharma but the feel of a slightly smaller business where the roles are exciting and really patient focused.

Your new role

This position is a Medical Director role, working within all phases of Clinical Development. It a role that will require some travel to Europe and the US (though US travel is less frequent). The role is accountable at a very senior level to another Director and a Senior Vice President within the business. The position is an exciting role that plays a really key part of the growth of the business and the products that the successful director will take on are some of the most important in the company's portfolio. The level of responsibility is very high for this role and they are also really exciting niche products that physicians or PhD candidates should get a lot of enjoyment working on.

What you'll need to succeed

A strong background in Clinical Development is a must. Someone who understands how to manage global trials and work with various different regions. Experience in Phase I-III would be best, Phase III being pivotal. The successful candidate should be driven and a self-starter, the client are looking for someone with a good level of autonomy in this position. The ability to engage with other areas of the business will be important from both a cultural and leadership perspective but this role will not have direct reports. The business is managed in a matrix structure.

What you'll get in return

The client are a very well-known business with a strong pipeline and set of marketed products. They offer a good package and are giving the chance to work on some of the most interesting products in the marketplace. They offer a strong salary and benefits package comparatively with the marketplace and they will offer some flexibility to work remotely in the role.
