When a pharma giant needs a Marketing Insights Manager, they call The Hired Guns. They’re in the midst of launching a new product and they need a marketing wunderkind to come in and help make that launch as successful as possible.
You’ve spent several years doing market research and analysis in the pharmaceutical industry. You have a keen understanding of the KPIs that matter in pharma, and you’re capable of recommending strategies and initiatives to the marketing troops on the front line. You love doing the intellectual heavy lifting on fundamental customer and market dynamics, and then seeing those insights grow into strategies and new opportunities.
Ideally, you’ve launched a few specialty products in the pharma space, and are ready to take what you learned from that and apply to it new products. You’re also going to need a solid understanding of the overall pharmaceutical industry, including how to gather and analyze hospital data sources.
The Gun who lands this role will be in charge of driving market research and analytics for a new specialty pharmaceutical product. You’ll be digging into mountains of data and synthesizing it into actionable chunks. You’ll surface brand issues, and your work will help stakeholders across numerous departments understand the customer and the overall market environment.
You’ll be tasked with telling the brand team what questions they need to solve for, as well as creating research plans and then operationalizing that research. In short, you’ll be the person responsible for telling the higher-ups what the market wants and what to do about it.
This client is open to a range of professional and educational backgrounds. They want someone who can bring fresh insight into the role, but they also want someone with a few years in the pharma trenches. If you came up an unlikely track before jumping into pharma, you might just have a leg up here. An MBA won’t hurt, either.
This gig will help a data wonk with a few years of pharma experience expand his or her toolkit. The chance to be a key component of a major product launch doesn’t come along every day, so we strongly suggest jumping at it.
