Your responsibilities:
As an Insight Analyst, you will be expected to work within a project team, using relevant research methods to identify and generate evidence to support our clients’ objectives.

You will also need to be organised (with excellence in time management), meticulous, reliable, and self-motivated.

About health economics:
With healthcare rationing becoming an increasingly relevant issue across many systems, owing to various factors including aging populations and novel technological advances in health treatments, the field of health economics continues to grow in importance. The tools developed by health economists are widely used to evaluate the clinical and economic value of drugs and devices, to help inform technology adoption decisions. This process involves economists, statisticians, and clinical writers with a capacity for finding creative solutions to challenging problems. Solving such problems requires programming and modeling expertise, as well as an in-depth understanding of the theoretical frameworks employed to assess value in a healthcare setting.

About BresMed:
BresMed is one of the largest privately owned health economics and outcomes research (HEOR) consultancies in the world.

This is achieved either through the production and communication of original health economic models or through the review, critique, and adaptation of models that are developed in-house by pharmaceutical companies, within academia, or by other consulting firms.

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

  • Research the disease area and understand the current treatment landscape
  • Analyze 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 inform model parameterization
  • Design and develop transparent and user-friendly economic models throughout the product life cycle, pre- and post-launch for local and global use – these models are typically built in Microsoft Excel®
  • Report and explain what you have done – verbally, in a written document, or as a presentation
  • Participate in team and client meetings
  • Work productively in a multidisciplinary team environment
  • Take responsibility for your work from your very first day

As you gain experience you will also be:

  • Producing supporting documentation for models such as technical reports and abstracts/posters, with a view to developing these skills to include writing manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals, presenting to clinical and economic advisory panels, and providing health economics training
  • Developing the economic sections of Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy (AMCP) dossiers, and health technology assessment (HTA) reimbursement dossiers and commissioning dossiers for a variety of global payers – for example, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in England

Key requirements:

  • A minimum of GPA 3.0, or equivalent, in a relevant major (such as mathematics, statistics, operational research, decision science, medical sciences, pharmacy, economics or computer sciences)
  • Self-motivation and an interest in learning more about economic modeling and the health economics industry
  • Excellent numerical and critical thinking skills, with the ability to clearly and simply explain complex calculations and ideas, both verbally and in writing
  • Written English to a professional scientific-writing standard
  • Excellent communication skills and an ease in liaising with technical and non-technical audiences
  • Fluency in Microsoft Office® packages, including Excel (Visual Basic® for Applications and other logic-based software coding knowledge is valuable but not essential at entry)
  • Organizational skills with close attention to detail

Compensation and benefits package:
At BresMed, we believe in equality across our international companies. We are therefore pleased to offer the following:

  • Competitive salary plus bonus scheme
  • 33.5 days paid leave inclusive of public holidays
  • Pension (upon completion of your probationary period)
  • Healthcare plan
  • Other health and wellbeing benefits

How to apply:
