Join us on our exciting journey! IQVIA™ is The Human Data Science Company™, focused on using data and science to help healthcare clients find better solutions for their patients.

Join the Real-World Insights team to help us deliver high‑quality scientific research to our clients in the global pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. 

Our goal is to contribute to the body of scientific evidence that allows medical practitioners to treat patients in the most effective way, and health systems to include as many patients as possible.

We use data, collected for clinical (and other) purposes to answer research questions such as "which treatment works best in the real world, beyond the clinical trial setting?" Our fast paced and supportive environment attracts individuals who care deeply about the quality, timeliness and subsequent impact of their work; who thrive when exposed to the scale and variety of scientific challenges we face.

You will join a high profile, talented and fast paced team, actively participating and supporting the development and delivery of client projects and new Real World Insights (RWI) product offerings. As a core team member you will contribute to both client work and business development.

  • Acquiring deep knowledge of IQVIA data sources and the broader Real World Data landscape.
  • Assisting in the development of proposals for clients.
  • Supporting discrete initiatives around IQVIA’s broad RWI strategy.
  • Develop and prepare abstracts, manuscripts and/or presentations to conferences for internal and external projects
  • Present insights and perspectives to clients, internal training courses and conference presentations
  • Contribute to improving operational efficiencies of workflows, including writing of SOPs and quality management documents

Analysts will usually be staffed on 2-3 projects in parallel ensuring a broad exposure to the wide range of activities.


  • Proven analytical, interpretative and problem-solving skills.
  • Strong interpersonal and relationship building skills and an ability to build credibility with external and internal contacts.
  • Good commercial awareness/business judgement and an interest in the healthcare / life sciences industry.
  • Strong IT literacy e.g. Word, PowerPoint, Excel.
  • Good time management and organisational skills.
  • Attention to detail and ability to deliver high quality work within timeline.
  • The desire to learn and commitment to a rapid development curve.
  • Be a self-starter who thrives in a client-focused, international team environment.
