Vice President Global Regulatory Affairs, Fast growing pharmaceutical company, well financed with plans to expand world wide.

I'm currently hiring for one of my long established clients for a Vice President for global regulatory affairs. The role is open as the company have grown significantly over the last few years and ultimately will look to continue this growth in the years to come with many new product launches world wide. What we look for is an experienced regulatory affairs professional with broad pharma regulatory experience across EMA/FDA, post marketing and new launches. The company are still relatively small and will need someone who can be dynamic, hands on and have a commercial mind set.

I've worked with this Pharmaceutical Company for close to 8 years now, so I'm happy to talk through case studies and the pro's and cons. The key take away is it's a good role for someone who wants to be in a smaller, more commercial environment. It's worlds apart from big pharma and there is a lot to learn here that wouldn't necessarily come up in bigger companies. The company has both pre approval and post approval products and we need someone with passion for both sides.

If you could be interested 'In-principle' then feel free to contact me. Interest may well be high and the requirements will be very strict, so I will be open with applicants around this.
