Engagement Manager / Principal – Real World Clinical Innovation

Europe based

IQVIA's EMEA strategy is to continue to establish and grow our footprint of being in the centre of healthcare, serving life science companies, healthcare providers, governments, regulators, and payers.

As we accelerate our growth into healthcare markets, we are seeking to recruit talented individuals to be part of the high science bid pursuit team.

    • Pragmatic approach to ensuring the best solution is proposed to meet the client needs
  • Senior high complexity project management experience in digital or RWE environments
  • Exceptional presentation, communication, and facilitation skills
    • Strong interpersonal skills to build internal and external networks
    • Comfortable talking science with both an academic clinician and a life science audience
    • Able to create engaging presentations and proposals
  • Strong team management and development skills
    • Enjoys collaborating with others to achieve best outcomes
    • Able to manage a small team
    • Develop and manage a small “stable” of specialist 3rd party bid project managers
    • Experience of building budgets and delivery plans to include in proposal
  • High intellect, able to quickly grasp the big picture
  • Exceptional enquiring mind
