Place text below.

Start Date: Between April and October 2018
Location: Utrecht, Netherlands

About BresMed:
BresMed works with pharmaceutical and medical technology companies, helping them to demonstrate the clinical and economic value of their products to governments and healthcare providers. This is mainly achieved through the development of health economic models, which utilise cutting edge economic and statistical methodology.
BresMed is one of the largest privately owned health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) consultancies in the world. With our head office in Sheffield we employ over 140 people in the UK, Ireland, India, the Netherlands, and the US. There are frequent opportunities for international placements.
We identify ourselves as having a vibrant culture where everybody matters. Many of our employees join us as graduates, and we believe in developing our staff and exposing them to responsibility from an early stage in their careers, enabling rapid progression within a supportive environment.
Due to the continued growth of our business we are now recruiting for a Health Economist in an entry level role (either with a relevant Master’s degree or PhD).

Key Responsibilities:
The core focus of your work will be developing cost-effectiveness models to demonstrate what would happen to patients on a new health technology (drug, device, diagnostic technique, etc.). This is achieved by modeling their costs and clinical outcomes in relation to existing treatments. The job is varied because every model is different, and your role will depend on your skills and interests, but most projects will require you to:

  • Research the disease area and understand the current treatment landscape
  • Analyse the effectiveness and safety of the new technology using results published in journal articles and patient level data from clinical trials or disease registries
  • Use research skills to identify appropriate inputs to populate the model
  • Design, build and interpret the results of the model – this requires technical Excel® and VBA coding skills
  • Report and explain what you have done – verbally, in a written document, or as a presentation
  • Produce submission documents to go to reimbursement bodies, such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in the UK and Zorginstituut Nederland (ZINL) in the Netherlands, that assess the cost effectiveness and budget impact of new health technologies
  • Produce supporting documentation, such as technical reports and abstracts/posters, with a view to developing these skills to include writing manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals
  • Participate in team and client meetings
  • Work productively in a multidisciplinary team environment as well as independently
  • Take responsibility for your work from the very first day 

Your skills:
Candidates will be expected to have a BSc or MSc (or equivalent) in maths, statistics, operational research, decision science, medical sciences, economics, computer sciences, epidemiology or a related discipline, alongside excellent numerical ability and critical thinking. As we entrust Health Economists with their own projects, candidates will need to enjoy working independently and be able to resolve issues and challenges as they arrive. Given the industry and teams we work with, candidates will need to be able to explain complex calculations and ideas both verbally and in writing.

Compensation and benefits package:

  • From €35,000 (dependent on experience) plus company bonus scheme
  • 33.5 days paid leave inclusive of bank holidays
  • Pension
  • Individually tailored career development plan
  • Healthcare and wellbeing benefits

How to apply:
Applicants must be able to demonstrate legal eligibility to work.
