Start date: From August/ September 2017
Location: Sheffield or Manchester

Are you interested in bringing your medical affairs knowledge and research skills to a company that is both successful and rapidly expanding to meet growing client demand?
If so, BresMed is offering an exciting opportunity to join our talented team.

About BresMed:
BresMed is one of the largest privately-owned health economic and outcomes research (HEOR) consultancies in the world. The office dynamic is intellectually stimulating, fun and focused on results. With our head office in Sheffield we employ over 100 people in the UK, Denmark, India, Ireland and the Netherlands. We are also currently opening an office in the US, which means that there are frequent opportunities for international placements.
Our services support a wide range of clients including top pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers and small biopharma at the global, European and affiliate level. We have a portfolio that covers the full product development pipeline from early planning to implementation and launch. We work closely with clients to develop economic models and analyses for HTA submission and reimbursement (to NICE, the SMC, the AWMSG, the NCPE as well as other European and international authorities). We have strong links with academia, and our team members are encouraged and supported to develop innovative and cutting-edge methodologies.
We identify ourselves as having a vibrant culture where everyone 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.

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. As such, your main role will be to gather evidence under the guidance of senior staff to inform the strategic and tactical recommendations we provide to clients.

You will be expected to:

  • Work on multiple client projects and take responsibility for specific tasks assigned to you by project leads to ensure deliverables are on time and to expectations. The type of projects you will work on will vary, but will generally be qualitative research projects that require stakeholder engagements or desk-based non-systematic reviews.
  • Support comprehensive, but non-systematic, reviews of reference databases and websites to quickly and efficiently identify key information.
  • Support the development of high-quality questionnaires, surveys and interview guides.
  • Organise and support stakeholder interviews, advisory boards, focus groups, Delphi panels and other means of expert opinion elicitation.
  • Write high quality reports and presentations, demonstrating an understanding of the topic under consideration.
  • Communicate with internal colleagues to ensure that expectations for projects are fully met.
  • Keep up-to-date with appropriate methodologies and identify training that might benefit you in providing high quality deliverables.

Your skills:
You should have excellent English-language communication skills (both written and oral), for interviewing, report writing, development of manuscripts, and development and delivery of presentations. Ideally your experience will include knowledge of health care decision making processes in Europe and will come from a previous consultancy-based market access and/or HEOR role, or from specific university courses completed. A keen interest in the European health care sector and a willingness to develop knowledge of the health care decision making processes is essential.

Specifically, you will need to have:

  • A degree in health economics, research methods or a related field (such as biomedical or social sciences) or equivalent relevant experience
  • Technical writing skills with the ability to convey complex information as a cohesive story
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint

You will have a distinct advantage if you also have:

  • Fluency in another European language
  • A post-graduate qualification
  • Familiarity with NVivo (qualitative data analysis management software)
  • Basic Microsoft Excel skills

Due to the project-based nature of the business, you will need to have an enthusiasm for variety along with a flexible attitude. We will be entrusting you with key project tasks, so you will need to enjoy working independently, and be able to resolve issues and challenges as they arise. You will also need to be organised (with excellence in time management), meticulous, reliable, and self-motivated. Interpersonal and communication skills are imperative as is the willingness to be a team player.

 Compensation and benefits package:

  • Competitive salary (dependent on experience) plus bonus
  • 33.5 days paid leave inclusive of national holidays
  • Pension
  • Private healthcare
  • Other health and wellbeing benefits

How to apply:
Applicants must be able to work in the UK without sponsorship or restriction. To apply for this role please send a CV and cover letter detailing your eligibility for the role to jobs@bresmed.com (please include the job reference ACUK0617-1 in the subject line of your email).
