We have been exclusively retained by an international biopharmaceutical company that is seeking to appoint its first ever Compliance Director for the UK & Ireland.  Our client has seen over 300% growth in the last five years alone and this exciting newly created role will support further expansion. The role is based in Cambridge, and offers very flexible working.

As part of the UK & Ireland leadership team, this person will play a critical role in helping the business achieve its key strategic objectives by leading and further developing the compliance program. More specifically, this person will ensure that robust processes and systems are in place to deal with healthcare compliance including ABPI & IPHA codes of practice. The role will also involve further implementing the code of conduct, conducting training and contracting with HCPs/HCOs to ensure that the business adheres to transparency requirements. This is a fantastic opportunity to take ownership over a developing compliance program where the management take compliance seriously and want to set the right tone from the top. 

This position would be suited to a compliance professional with extensive pharmaceutical industry experience, an expert knowledge of the ABPI code of practice and a deep understanding of anti-bribery and anti-corruption and transparency in relation to HCP contracting. The successful candidate will have excellent communication, leadership and analytical skills, together with an ability to influence at all levels.

Please reach out in confidence to Samantha Knowles, Director of Research, (samantha.knowles@laurencesimons.com), or Victoria Jackson, Director, (victoria.jackson@laurencesimons.com).
