 Job Title

Therapeutic Group Manager

 Job Description / Details about position

How do you get the best value for money from the national budget for pharmaceuticals?

This, in a nutshell, is the critical question that PHARMAC's Therapeutic Group Managers seek to address from rigorous clinical, economic and commercial analysis of funding proposals to working effectively with clinicians and leading contract negotiations and development of business cases. It's all about making real improvements to the lives of New Zealanders and helping ensure health sector resources are used as effectively as possible. 

In this rewarding and challenging role you will be responsible for managing PHARMAC's funding activities within a range of therapeutic areas. This is a real opportunity to be at the core of PHARMAC's operations, influencing the practical intersect of evidence-based medicine, economics and commerce. 

Your high level of analytical ability and problem solving will be critical when presenting clear business cases derived from complex scientific/clinical data, non-financial information and financial data. Your ability to work with ease with clinicians and senior stakeholders will be essential to your success within this role. You may be currently working in a clinical role, health-related management or within the pharmaceutical industry. In addition to your pharmaceutical and/or health sector knowledge, you will bring proven project management and commercial negotiation abilities and be comfortable dealing with ambiguity. 

The role has a level of autonomy and applicants will need to be self-driven to manage time-pressured work but also need to work as part of a team. You will be part of the Pharmaceutical Funding team and supported to learn and succeed in our fast paced and dynamic workplace. We would aim to assign you to a therapeutic group you have some familiarity with. Take a look at the Our People area of our website to see the profile for one of our seniors 

PHARMAC is the government agency responsible for ensuring that New Zealanders have access to a wide range of affordable medicines.  As an international leader in pharmaceutical management PHARMAC makes a vital contribution to New Zealand's health outcomes. Our team combines experts in medicine, science, commerce, analysis, marketing and more. We're a small organisation (around 120 staff) where your expertise is respected.
