Job Description

IQVIA™ is the leading human data science company focused on helping healthcare clients find unparalleled insights and better solutions for patients. Formed through the merger of IMS Health and Quintiles, IQVIA offers a broad range of solutions that harness the power of healthcare data, domain expertise, transformative technology, and advanced analytics to drive healthcare forward.

The Analytics Center of Excellence (ACOE)

The Analytics Center of Excellence (ACOE) in IQVIA connects big data in healthcare, new technologies, advanced methodologies, and scientific expertise to transform research for our clients. For example, the ACOE currently applies healthcare data to studies to:

  • Rethink study design
  • Truly target site identification
  • Support effective patient recruitment

Global Solutions Manager, Real World Evidence (RWE) Studies - the role

The Global Solutions Manager (GSM) for RWE studies is an internal consultant who works with the teams bidding for and executing RWE studies. The GSM develops data insights that accelerate the delivery and strengthen the impact of RWE studies. By enabling better research and faster results, the GSM is making a meaningful different in healthcare across many countries and therapeutic areas.

This role may be filled at the Consultant or Senior Consultant level with preference for Consultant level.

Specifically, at a study level the GSM:

  • Partners with internal teams to understand relevant challenges within a study and to identify analytics that can help meet these challenges
  • Works with country-specific analysts who will generate the data insights
  • Communicates results to internal teams and to external clients, demonstrating a deep knowledge of both data sources and study goals

The GSM is also at the forefront of innovation, helping the larger business to identify, develop, and operationalize ways to use data insights in IQVIA’s study offerings broadly. Because the GSM works closely with pre- and post-award studies, they have unique insight into how IQVIA can use analytics to transform our offerings.

Your typical activities might include but are not limited to:

  • Consulting with a study team to create a project scope for how the ACOE will provide information that supports the team’s goals.
  • Coordinating input from country-level analysts in line with the project scope. This involves critically reviewing results and, in some cases, working with the global analytics team on multiple iterations of output to ensure results meet the project objective.
  • Presenting results, and answering questions as expert on these results, to internal teams.
  • Attending bid defense meetings and other client engagements to discuss analytical insights. Most client meetings would be by phone but there may be occasional travel.
  • Creating innovation in how we deliver studies through the use of real-world data.
  • Educating and mentoring the study team and other stakeholders on our differentiating solutions.
  • Working with internal teams to continuously improve our processes.

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • Relevant analytics experience such as data profiling, predictive modeling, or creating projections from incomplete data.
  • A Bachelor's degree and 3-7 years (depending on hiring level) relevant experience in analytics, consulting, study delivery, and/or project management. An advanced degree related to data science or health care may substitute for years’ experience.
  • Strong presentation skills.
  • Knowledge of pharmaceutical trials and studies, ideally with experience in non-interventional studies.
  • Multi-country/cultural experience.
  • Proven relationship-building skills, and an active listener.
  • Some flexibility to support early or late calls and to support occasional client-facing business travel (< 10%).

Please note - this role can be based anywhere in EU.
