Sales Specialist, Healthcare

Location: Location London/Remote

Department: Healthcare

IQVIA continues to increase revenues from selling our NHS data analysis tools and real-world patient pathway analytics to pharmaceutical, consumer health and medical device companies. Key to our continued success is the recruitment of a talented individual focused on developing solutions that help our Life Science customers to understand, access and engage the NHS in innovative new ways, equipping them with the insight necessary for them to achieve their objectives.

IQVIA is in an exciting phase of further developing the UKI business; continuing the transition from an established data provider to pharmaceutical clients, to partnering with them on providing end to end solutions that significantly add value. We do this through our deep understanding of the industry and developing intimate knowledge of our clients.

The Healthcare team’s capabilities include, but are not limited to: Patient Level Information and Costing Solutions, Pathway Analytics, Health Economics, Outcomes Research, Real World Evidence (RWE), Management Consulting and Services, Business Intelligence Data, Analytic Platforms, Analytics Outsourcing, Mobile Dashboards, Social and Digital Media Technology.

A successful solutions sales specialist within IQVIA will proactively engage clients around their portfolio to generate new sales leads. They will then work collaboratively with clients and the internal IQVIA business to translate requirements into propositions that leverage IQVIA’s strengths and assets and that subsequently result in new business being generated.

The person must firstly possess a firm understanding of how care is provided to patients by the NHS and be familiar with how the NHS generates and consumes data. They must then apply tenacity, energy and intellect to determine how IQVIA’s capabilities can strengthen the portfolio of our life science industry customers in what is often a complex environment. The successful individual must therefore be collaborative and engaging in how they go about their work.
